Improving Air Quality

National health concern

Diesel combustion is a major emitter of Nitrogen Dioxide (NOx), particulates and polyamoratics.

The health effects the public are severe; ranging from breathlessness and dizziness and asthma, through to increased rates of lung cancer.

Improve air quality in your towns and cities

Prema Renewable Diesel offers an immediate and substantial reduction in polyaromatics and particulate emissions. NOx emissions are much lower than standard diesel and exhaust smoke levels are considerably reduced.

Meet Low Emission Zone (LEZ) targets

Prema Renewable Diesel is an effective means of rapidly reducing NOx and particulate levels in LEZ’s.

In a matter of minutes of minutes, you can reduce the emissions of all vehicles and generators combusting diesel.

Crucially, this includes older high-emissions vehicles and plant.



Reduction in polyaromatics


Reduction of ash / particulates

Reducing your regions carbon footprint

Decarbonising cities and towns

Growing pressure is mounting on governments and councils to reduce their CO2 emissions throughout their range of operations and infrastructure.

Critically, this transition must maintain smooth operations, ensure machinery reliability and prove to be economically viable.

Lower emissions on site

Prema Renewable Diesel (HVO) offers up to 90% carbon savings over traditional road grade diesel.

The combustion of HVO does not release any new greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere. The only new CO2 emissions are associated with the processing and transport of fuel to the UK.

To determine exactly how much CO2 you could save, see our Carbon Calculator further below:


Reduce greenhouse gas emissions up to 90%

Governments, clients, contractors and their supply chains are all searching for the same thing:

A simple, cost effective and reliable means of decarbonising their construction activities. 

Prevent exposure to (harmful emissions) by adopting substitution of diesel fuel to a safer fuel alternative.

Other benefits for government and councils


Long term storage

Standard grade road diesel contains 7 – 10% FAME – a lower grade biofuel than HVO. Due to FAME’s high water content, algae and bacteria will start growing in only 3 months of stagnation.

Prema Renewable Diesel (HVO) has excellent long term storage properties. This helps vehicles and generators to start first time – regardless of how long they are inactive.

Emergency generators, marine applications and seasonal machinery often use HVO for this reason. 

Nationwide delivery

We offer UK wide delivery within 48 hours – thanks to our haulage and distribution partners.

We can fuel your site with any volume; from a small one-off delivery through to regular full articulated road tankers.
