Circle K begins expansion of HVO renewable diesel pumps

Forecourt and convenience retailer Circle K has opened three new milesBIO HVO100 pumps across its network, following the launch of its first Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) renewable diesel pump in Dublin Port at the end of last year.

The three new milesBIO HVO100 pumps are located Circle K Junction 8, M8, Cashel, Co. Tipperary; Circle K Junction 5, M9, Rathcrogue, Co. Carlow; and Circle K Junction 14, M8, Gortore, Fermoy, Co. Cork.

Circle K says it will continue to expand its HVO offering in the coming months, with a commitment to have HVO renewable diesel available on all national road routes before the end of 2023.

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.

HVO renewable diesel is being used across Circle K’s fleet of fuel delivery vehicles, with partners including Musgrave and Stobart Logistics now using milesBIO HVO100 to reduce emissions across their fleets.
