Scottish ski resort seeks to introduce biodiesel use for machinery

November 28, 2019 |

In the UK, snow making, road clearing and other diesel-fueled machinery at Cairngorm Mountain in Scotland is set to be powered by biofuel in the new year.

The move is expected to cut carbon emissions from the equipment by up to 90%. Operator, Cairngorm Mountain (Scotland) Limited (CMSL), has issued a tender to biofuel traders on the National Fuels Framework to supply the center with hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), as a replacement for diesel. CMSL plans to replace the diesel with HVO by the end of December. HVO will also be used in the centre’s two road-clearing Unimog truck and CMSL has approached the manufacturer of its new piste grooming vehicle for confirmation that it too can be run on HVO.
