We supply the first home in the country to run on renewable HVO
Mitchell & Webber is the first distributor to deliver the new, low carbon heating fuel for UK trials.
We are proud to fit and supply the first home in the country with the renewable fuel, which has completely replaced the use of traditional fossil fuel at the property in Redruth, Cornwall.
The fossil-free renewable fuel, called Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO), is produced from certified waste fats and oils. Unlike previous biofuels, HVO is manufactured by a synthesised process with hydrogen to create a greener, renewable fuel.
The first property in the country to run on the renewable HVO fuel is a bungalow in Scorrier, Redruth, which previously relied on oil for heating. In order to switch the property to the new HVO supply, Mitchell & Webber installed a low cost converted burner to the boiler and are now monitoring its ongoing performance.
Property owner Zoe said, Making the switch was all hassle free. It didn’t affect me whatsoever and was all done quickly and efficiently. It feels wonderful using a fossil-free fuel because it makes us feel like we’re doing our bit to help the environment!
