Renewable UPM BioVerno is a sustainable Finnish alternative to fossil fuels that behaves in the same way as conventional diesel in all engines - and fits seamlessly into existing distribution systems. Unlike first generation biofuels, UPM BioVerno has no blending limit so distributors can even use it at 100%.
UPM BioVerno diesel significantly reduces both carbon dioxide emissions and local air pollution from traffic. According to studies tailpipe emissions such as particle mass, hydrocarbon, carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide emissions are reduced by up to 10% compared to conventional diesel fuel.
Tests show similar or improved engine efficiency, without compromising engine power, when compared to fossil diesel. As a result of high energy content and density of UPM BioVerno renewable diesel the fuel consumption stays the same or is improved compared to conventional diesel.
