"Switching to biofuel not only means no more smoke, but subsequent generator tests have shown NOx emissions are down 25%, with particulates down 95%" - Broadcastnow
The TV industry is vulnerable to mixed reviews over its sustainability performance. The energy-intensive nature of Tv & Film production, with lighting and other equipment often powered by diesel generators, can result in productions with a high carbon footprint.
Bio-Diesel is a useful way to reduce harmful emissions, and it a better fuel for your machinery too. For every tonne of biodiesel used to replace petroldiesel, three tonnes less carbon dioxide are released into the atmosphere.
HVO Biodiesel is a 'clean-burning', made from animal or vegetable fat and domestic oil recycled through a process called transesterification, where glycerine is separated from vegetable oil. The cetane number for HVO is between 70–90, which is significantly higher compared to 50–60 for fossil diesel. It provides extra power to the engine and more efficient and cleaner combustion that reduces soot in engines and exhaust systems.
As a renewable and sustainable raw material, the fuel is odourless and ensures no smoke on engine start-up. HVO Biofuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% and works well in all diesel engines, without any special adaptation.
Biodiesel is a ‘drop-in’ replacement for diesel, requiring no adaptation to existing diesel engines and provides the following benefits to your operational footprint:
