Repsol, Bilbobus, and Alsa launch first pilot project using HVO net zero emissions fuel

June 20, 2021 |

In Spain, Repsol, Bilbobus, and Alsa launched the first pilot project in Spain to use HVO, a net zero emissions fuel. Over the next four months, 12 buses in the fleet of Bilbobus, the Bilbao city bus line, will run on advanced residue-based biofuels.

HVO is an advanced, 100%-renewable biofuel that meets the European Union Renewable Energy Directive’s requirements for certification as a sustainable fuel and it is considered a net zero emissions fuel.

The project will contribute to saving approximately 300 tons of CO2 emissions. It aims to demonstrate that advanced residue-based biofuels offer part of the solution needed by urban mobility to meet climate neutrality commitments

HVO also complies with all the technical requirements to ensure its use in Bilbobus’s diesel-powered vehicles without modifications. Bilbobus is operated by Alsa, Spain’s largest motorcoach carrier line.
