07.05.2024 By Tank Terminals - NEWS

July 05, 2024 [Tank Terminal]- Certas Energy will supply more than 250,000 litres of renewable diesel to the British Grand Prix in support of its mission to reach net zero emissions.


Certas Energy, the UK’s largest distributor of fuel and lubricants, has won the contract to supply HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) to the historic Formula 1 event taking place on 7 July. HVO is a lower carbon alternative diesel which offers immediate greenhouse gas emissions savings of up to 90% compared to standard diesel across the product life cycle.

The contract is part of Silverstone’s ‘Shift to Zero’ strategy to reduce its carbon footprint and will see HVO power hundreds of generators used at the event, from the busy catering and hospitability tents for the likes of McLaren and Mercedes to the trucks and vans used by the world’s media to cover the race. Sam Edwards, Regional Manager at Certas Energy, says: ‘Silverstone is leading the way when it comes to sustainability and our HVO will be essential in supporting its ongoing commitment to the environment.’
