The time to act is now - the world is decarbonizing

The world is embarking on a CO2 decarbonization journey with the goal of decreasing its heating emissions with 50% by 2030 and reaching CO2 neutrality by 2050.

The future of oil heating systems (starting in Europe) will be based on liquid low carbon fuels. Different types of carbon-neutral liquid fuels are already in production, created from different types of raw materials. These fuels can be used in modern condensing boilers without the need for alterations. Furthermore, the existing supply infrastructure can be used. The carbon-neutral heating fuels will be “drop in” replacements for oil.

Following the global ecological transition for a carbon neutrality, Danfoss has converted its burner component products, making them compatible with these new biofuels of different origins and characteristics, which will partially or totally replace current conventional fuels.

The solutions are here - Bio30 pumps and HVO nozzles

Our new Bio30 pumps and HVO nozzles for the burner components industry, will play part in our portfolio of solutions, helping customers to decarbonize and lower the heating emissions.

FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester) is the generic chemical term for biodiesel derived from renewable sources.
It is used to extend or replace mineral diesel and gas oil.

Based on vegetable oil (rapeseed, soybean, corn, beet, etc.), animal fats, used cooking oils or greasy industrial waste, which is processed with methanol to a liquid fuel, suitable for oil heating.

FAME is generally mixed with fossil fuel oil in varying proportions. A mixture of 30% FAME and 70% fossil fuel oil is referred to as B30.

However, higher levels of FAME content, even up to 100% FAME (B100), are becoming more and more common. 

Produced from used cooking oil, residues from the food industry and from vegetable oils (rapeseed oil, soybean oil, corn oil etc.), which are not intended for food.

HVO is part of the paraffinic fuel family. It is a second-generation biofuel, also known as an advanced biofuel or renewable diesel.

It can be mixed without restriction with fossil fuel.

Biomass-to-Liquid (BtL) is a multi-step process of producing synthetic hydrocarbon fuels made from biomass via a thermochemical route.

Generated from a variety of vegetable raw materials such as algae, waste, wood, or straw. Waste from households or industry also can serve as a carbon source in the process.

A greenhouse gas reduction potential of up to 90%.

Generated a synthetic liquid fuel by using renewable electricity, carbon dioxide from the atmosphere or other sources, and water.

Gas-to-Liquid (GTL) is a chemical process in which natural gas is converted to gasoline or diesel fuel.

A process to generate various chain hydrocarbons by utilizing the natural gas present across refineries.
