Circle K moving fleet to HVO renewable diesel

Circle K Ireland’s fleet of delivery vehicles will be fuelled exclusively by milesBIO HVO100 by early 2023.

The company is the first fuel retailer in Ireland to use Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) renewable diesel in its fleet of delivery vehicles.

Circle K’s fuel station located at Dublin Port will be the first to fuel the fleet with HVO renewable diesel, with work underway at two further locations in Galway and Cork.

milesBIO HVO100 is a completely fossil-free biofuel made from waste, by-products and derived products not intended for human consumption from the food industry and can be used to power diesel vehicles.

HVO alternative diesel is said to offer an up to 90 per cent reduction in carbon emissions over regular diesel.

While milesBIO HVO100 is new to Circle K Ireland, this renewable diesel has been available across Scandinavia at Circle K locations in Norway, Sweden and Denmark in recent years, which is helping to guide the introduction of the renewable diesel here.

milesBIO HVO100 will also be available to commercial customers at Circle K’s service station in Dublin Port, with the product to be rolled out at Circle K’s locations in Cork and Galway in the coming months.

Circle K anticipates that organisations operating large fleet transport vehicles in sectors such as refuse, retail, and logistics amongst others will benefit greatly from this new product.
