BAM Infra Nederland is the first construction company to switch to the fossil-free Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil fuel for all its asphalt equipment. With this fuel, BAM reduces CO2 emissions from its asphalt processing teams by up to 89 percent. In addition, this fuel also gives lower emissions of nitrogen, particulate matter and soot. For BAM, HVO fuel is the new standard for its asphalt equipment that now runs on diesel.

BAM has entered into an agreement with OK Oliecentrale for the supply of this sustainable fuel. Dennes Janssens, account manager at OK Oliecentrale: 'As one of the largest distributors of fuels and lubricants in the Netherlands, we naturally also offer our customers green alternatives: products that protect the environment or climate, or - in the case of HVO - the environment and climate , significantly less taxation. HVO's CO2 emissions are minimal during both the production process and in use, which means that on balance it can be reduced by up to 89 percent. With this, companies such as BAM can immediately start operating more sustainably without modifications to the engine or machine. '

The switch to HVO fuel is in line with BAM's sustainability ambitions. The company previously used its own manufactured 100 percent electric roller. And so the company looks at the options for the application of hydrogen. To have emission-free asphalt processing teams in the long run.

Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil, or HVO, is a synthetic diesel made from waste and residual flows. This makes it a direct replacement for fossil diesel oil and is possible without modifications in modern diesel engines. HVO is a pure synthetic product with a high purity. There is no risk of bacteria or flocculation in the tank, as is the case with biodiesel.
