Paraffinic diesel fuels meeting the EN15940 Class A standard offer cleaner alternatives for transport. Paraffinic fuels are clean, high quality diesel fuels made from a wide variety of feedstocks, and include GTL (Gas to liquid), as well as HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil). Paraffinic fuels are fungible and can be used at any blending rates up to 100% in current and future diesel engines. Therefore, these fuels can be distributed, stored and used with the existing infrastructure, and are available now.
