Deutsche Bahn using HVO in local trains

August 4, 2022 |

In Germany, Deutsche Bahn (DB) is continuing to drive the green traffic turnaround on the rails: Both the Sylt Shuttle and the Sylt Shuttle Plus are now running between Westerland and Niebüll with climate-friendly HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil). By saying goodbye to diesel, around 7,500 tons of CO2 are saved each year on the popular railway line to and from Sylt. The biofuel used by DB consists exclusively of biological residues and waste. This means that no specially cultivated biomass is used, so that competition with food and feed production is ruled out. In addition, the biofuel is free of palm oil.
