Circle K deliveries to come by renewable diesel

Jonathan Diver, Fuels Director with Circle K Ireland.

Circle K fuel delivery vehicles are themselves to be fully fuelled by renewable diesel by early 2023, writes Brian Byrne.

The fuel, 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 offers an up to 90pc reduction in carbon emissions over regular diesel. This renewable diesel has been available across Scandinavia at Circle K locations in Norway, Sweden and Denmark in recent years.

The fuel 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, to support commercial customers in decarbonising the journeys of their own respective fleets. Organisations operating large fleet transport vehicles in sectors such as refuse, retail, and logistics amongst others will benefit greatly from this new product.
