Every form of biodiesel must meet the specifications described in the EN 14214 standard. This applies to CHP biofuel, UCOMe biodiesel and FAME biodiesel. However, HVO fuel does not meet these specifications because it is not classified as a biodiesel. It is chemically identical to the traditional diesel and meets the specifications in EN 15940 Standard.

Biodiesel is an alternative option for traditional diesel and its variants, such as white diesel and red diesel. These fuels are governed by the EN 590 standard and BS 2869 standard, respectively.

You can learn more about these standards in our fuel specification guide.
