Taking Advantage of HVO renewable diesel

Rotterdam, 9 May 2023 - Royal Den Hartogh Logistics is proud to announce our latest collaboration with Shell Chemicals Europe B.V. in driving on HVO renewable diesel. This is a significant step towards achieving our goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 25% by 2025.

The partnership with Shell Chemicals allows us to take advantage of Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) renewable diesel, which is a sustainable and low-carbon alternative to traditional diesel fuel. By choosing HVO renewable diesel, we are able to reduce our carbon footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Alex van Leeuwen, Regional Commercial Director at Den Hartogh, continues: "By choosing HVO renewable diesel, we are able to not only reduce our carbon footprint, but also provide customers with sustainable transport solutions that align with their environmental goals."

Suzanne Roodenberg, Shell’s General Manager HSSE & Logistics, comments: "Shell is committed to driving towards a more sustainable future, and we're excited to partner with Den Hartogh Logistics in this initiative. Adoption speeds up when we work together in our efforts to lower carbon emissions."

Benefits of HVO
The benefits of HVO renewable diesel are numerous. It is made from waste materials and vegetable oils, making it a renewable and sustainable fuel source. It is also a low-emission fuel, meaning that it releases fewer harmful pollutants into the atmosphere. In fact, HVO renewable diesel can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90% compared to traditional diesel.
