At present, in the context of the 6% CO2 emission reduction target in the Czech Republic, there is a growing interest in biofuels with the lowest possible carbon footprint and in this context the trend to increase the share of renewable sources in transport, which includes HVO, it is necessary to use these components.
Diesel fuels containing HVO are already used in the Czech Republic. HVO is supplied to the Czech Republic by import or already in a blend as a finished diesel fuel according to EN 590, e.g. diesel with 30% HVO or with the addition of synthetic HVO, the quality of which sold at petrol stations is checked by the Czech Trade Inspection Authority .
In the Czech Republic the possibility of purchasing HVO is only possible by filling up at filling stations but the sale is limited to blends with a percentage of HVO in diesel, and not as pure HVO or HVO100.
