Craggs Energy Selects Green Biofuels’ Gd+ HVO for Launch of UK’s First In-Land HVO Fuel Terminal

Businesses and other fuel suppliers across the country can now access over half a million litres of drop-in diesel replacement fuel from Craggs Energy’s Head Office in Hebden Bridge, and its largest fuel terminal in Padiham, Lancashire.

Craggs Energy will be providing B2B suppliers, customers and businesses with Green Biofuels’ Gd+ HVO as a renewable alternative to both red and white diesel. Gd+ can be used instantly in any diesel engine without prior modifications and makes emissions savings of up to an eighty-five percent reduction in particulates, and up to a thirty percent reduction in Nitrogen Oxides, thanks to a special additive not found in any other HVO fuel available to the UK market.

Matthew Crockett, Managing Director at Craggs Energy comments:

“This is a huge achievement for Craggs Energy, and we are delighted to be working with GBF as an authorised distributor to supply this drop-in, renewable diesel that reduces carbon (CO2e) emissions by up to ninety percent.

We have already had a big uptake from our existing customers and businesses such as Queen Ethelburga’s Collegiate and Pavertec who have made the commitment to reducing their CO2e output.

Now that a number of industries are no longer entitled to use rebated red diesel it’s now more important than ever that businesses have a reliable source of an alternative diesel to keep their fleet and operations running smoothly. From our hubs within the heart of the UK, we are looking to considerably grow our coverage and supply of Gd+ HVO Fuel.”

Magnus Hammick, Chief Operating Officer at GBF said:

“This is another step forward in the switch to alternative fuels and we are happy to be working with a highly reputable and innovative fuel supplier such as Craggs Energy to grow our network and engage businesses to convert to this cleaner and renewable fuel.

GBF and Craggs have invested heavily in infrastructures, including storage tanks and state of the art pumps at their depots in the North of England to be able to store large quantities of our Gd+ HVO fuel for businesses and suppliers across the country. This is the first in-land HVO distribution hub in the UK which means we have greater resilience for capacity and demand.

The response we have seen so far since working with Craggs has been very positive and we are excited about what the next twelve months will bring for this partnership and renewable fuels.”
