Rye Group switches fuels in drive for 90% reduction in emissions

Demolition and groundworks specialist Rye Group has substituted use of standard red diesel with HVO (Hydro-treated Vegetable Oil) in its site plant and machinery to reduce fuel emissions and help inspire industry change.

Rye Group is committed to delivering its own Sustainable Standard philosophy, which targets the reduction of carbon emissions from all site equipment by 90% over the next two years.

Working with national fuel and lubricant provider, New Era Fuels, Rye took delivery of its first tank of HVO last week and immediately began using the fuel in its machinery located on the Kodak factory site in Harrow.

Made of used cooking oil and supplemented with an organic additive, HVO reduces carbon emissions by 90% and NOx emissions by 30% when compared to diesel.

Simon Barlow, Managing Director of Rye Group said: We are hugely excited to have taken such a significant step to reducing our environmental impact. As an organisation we are heavily focused on making a positive difference wherever we work, so it is fantastic to be able to transfer our fleet from diesel to HVO. We will accelerate the roll out over the coming weeks to maximise the benefit we deliver.”

James Hunt, Managing Director of New Era Fuels added: “Simon and the team at Rye have really championed the use of HVO and are leading the way in the industry. We are delighted that they have chosen to make the transition to HVO and work with us to manage the roll out across their extensive fleet of plant and machinery.”
