Using wood-based UPM BioVerno significantly reduces road traffic tailpipe emissions. All emission tests carried out on UPM BioVerno are done using conventional fossil diesel as a reference fuel. According to several studies, tailpipe emissions such as particle mass, hydrocarbon, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide emissions are reduced by up to dozens of percent compared to conventional diesel fuel, depending on vehicle technology.
UPM BioVerno diesel test results show similar or improved efficiency in the engine, without compromising engine power, when compared to fossil diesel. By using 100% UPM BioVerno diesel, fuel consumption does not increase or may even decrease when compared to conventional diesel.
