UPM BioVerno significantly reduces both carbon dioxide emissions and local air pollution from traffic. The low tailpipe emissions of Finnish UPM BioVerno diesel make it the fuel of choice for environmentally aware drivers.
UPM BioVerno has been tested in several engine and vehicle trials using a wide range of vehicle makes and models at various research institutes, including the Technical Research Centre of Finland - VTT, the University of Vaasa, and the internationally renowned vehicle technology research institute FEV in Germany.
Emission tests are always benchmarked against conventional fossil diesel fuel. Depending on the applicable vehicle technology, several studies indicate substantial double figure percentage reductions in pollutants such as fine particles, hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide compared to conventional diesel fuel.
UPM BioVerno diesel achieved at least the same or greater efficiency than conventional diesel in all tests with no loss of engine power.
UPM BioVerno also reduces vehicle emissions when used in fuel blends. Its high quality and cetane rating enable cleaner combustion resulting in substantially lower tailpipe emissions, with clear superiority over conventional fossil fuel achieved even in blends containing only 30 per cent of renewable diesel.
