Power Electrics' Journey to Green 2022 Report
Power Electrics are committed to reducing Greenhouse gases emitted from generators. As we progress on our low carbon journey and cement Power Electrics' position as a leader in sustainable power generation, we are delighted to offer Green D+ as an alternative to traditional diesel.
Green D+ is a high-performance HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) fuel which reduces your carbon emissions, nitrogen oxides and particulates.
Green D+ reduces the amount of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere by up to 90%. By reducing on site emissions this can assist your organisation by improving your corporate and social responsibility along with reaching your carbon cutting targets.
By running your generator on Green D+ you will improve local air quality and reduce NOx levels up to 30% and particulate matter by 87%. Green D+ can assist your organisation gain planning permits and mitigate regulations such as Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) legislation.
When compared to traditional fuels like petrol, diesel and bio-diesel, HVO fuels perform better in various areas along with the reduced emissions. The below table compares Green D+ to Red Diesel through various properties.
|Aromatics||30% Carbon deposits in fuel system & engine||None, Cleans Engine|
|Cetane Value||45-48||70+ Rapid cold start, lower exhaust emissions, less noise|
|Engine Oil||Ok||None: No Sulphur, No Oxidation, No Polymeric Reaction Products|
|Efficiency||Ok||Ok: Equal to Red Diesel|
|Emissions||Poor Overall||Far Less on All: 35% less NOx, up to 85% Less Particulates|
|Sulphur Content||Ok: 10-20PPM||None|
|Stability/Storage||Ok||Indefinite Storage Life|
|Ash, Metals||Ok||None: No effect on exhaust after treatment systems|
|Cold Properties||-12C Needs additive thereafter||Non additive needed. Production up to -34C. Can be brought to -45C|
|Heating Value (MJ/I)||=35.7||=34.1-34.4|
|Cold Operability||+ Additive Ok by inefficient||Very Good|
|In Diesel Fuel (Vol-%)||30-100 Drop in Fuel|
Green D+ has been independently tested in various markets, including manufacturers of engines, all of which approve the use of the fuel with their engines. These tests were carried out on the following equipment:
