We bet on 100% Renewable Diesel HVO from Cepsa


Nou Transport, in its firm commitment to lead the way towards more sustainable transportation, has announced a strategic alliance with Cepsa for the incorporation of 100% Renewable Diesel HVO on some of its routes, marking a significant milestone in reducing its carbon footprint.



HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil), a 100% renewable diesel, stands out for its ability to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 90% throughout its lifecycle compared to traditional fuels, a feature of paramount importance in a context where sustainability and emission reduction are crucial priorities in the transportation industry.



In addition to achieving a significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, HVO is fully compatible with Euro VI diesel engines, facilitating an immediate transition to more sustainable practices. This compatibility allows Nou Transport to incorporate this biofuel without the need for additional investments or modifications to its existing fleet.



The strategic collaboration with Cepsa ensures Nou Transport a constant and reliable supply of this second-generation biofuel, thus consolidating its commitment to environmental preservation and reinforcing its position as a leader in innovation within the transportation sector.



Cepsa supplies HVO at eight Service Stations located in several of the country’s main logistical corridors and nodes: La Junquera (Girona), Mercazaragoza (Zaragoza), Cerro de la Cabaña (Madrid), La Cañada (Zamora), Araia (Álava), Albarique II (Valencia), CTM Sevilla (Seville), and Los Angeles I (Madrid), and plans to expand the reach of its network throughout 2024. Additionally, aiming to guarantee supply to its customers in land, sea, and air transport, it is constructing, alongside Bio-Oils, the largest second-generation biofuels plant in Southern Europe, with an investment of 1.2 billion euros. This facility, scheduled to start operations in 2026 in Palos de la Frontera (Huelva), will have a flexible production capacity of 500,000 tons of renewable diesel and SAF.
