VARO x Port of Rotterdam - Decarbonisation with HVO100


2024 will be a pivotal year for VARO, as we further accelerate our ambition to be the energy transition partner of choice for our partners and customers.

Our long-standing partnership with the Port of Rotterdam, exemplifies our commitment to help our customers decarbonise and reach net zero. Together we are accelerating the energy transition, even in the hardest-to-abate sectors.

We are working with the Port of Rotterdam to help decarbonise maritime transport and inland shipping in Europe’s largest port. Since 2018, the Port of Rotterdam has used VARO’s HVO100 (100% Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) for its service fleet. This biofuel is made entirely from sustainable materials, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 89% compared to conventional diesel. 

This ‘drop-in fuel’ can be blended with conventional diesel in any proportion and is well suited for all existing diesel engines without modification. As a result, HVO is a highly accessible means of decarbonisation that is rapidly scalable at a relatively low cost.

Our partnership is testament of our commitment to drive change and shape a sustainable future through strategic collaborations.
