What Our Client Needed

Gorst Energy Ltd’s anaerobic digester produces green energy from biogas. The energy it produces is sufficient to heat 4,600 of Exeter’s homes with gas and power and 2,300 of Exeter’s homes with electricity.

Whilst we are a significant producer of low carbon energy, we are continually seeking the next step towards our Net Zero goal. We have been reviewing the use of mineral diesel in our loading shovels which feed the digester, with options including electricity, green gas, or green diesel.

The Green D+ HVO

After reviewing technologies available, both electric and gas loading shovels were discounted as machines with sufficient capacity for our needs are not yet available. Once we realised Green D+ HVO was available the switch became amazingly simple – we could retain our current machine and simply switch to a green fuel. The reduction in particulates and NOx from Green D + HVO was also a key benefit – both for our staff and local residents.

Benefits of using Green D+ HVO

  • NOx reduction of up to 30%
  • Particulates reduction up to 85%
  • CO2e reduction of 90%
  • No capital cost to change machine to use Green D+ HVO
