Paraffinic fuels can reduce passenger car PM emissions by 25-40%.
Paraffinic Fuels have almost zero sulphur and aromatics.
Switching to paraffinic fuels could lead to an immediate improvement in local air quality.
Paraffinic fuels are made from natural gas (GTL) , biomass (BTL), or hydrotreated vegetable oils (HVO).
Paraffinic fuels produce less NOx, SOx and PM than conventional diesel.
HVO reduces greenhouse gas emissions by over 40–90% over the product's entire life cycle when compared to fossil diesel.
There is enough paraffinic fuel production capacity to fuel all the diesel demand of any Scandinavian country, or 1 in 10 cars in Germany.
Paraffinic fuels broaden Europe's energy mix.
Much of the technology development and research into paraffinic fuels takes place in Europe.
Switching all diesel vehicles in Brussels to paraffinic fuels would lead to the reduction of 129 tonnes of PM.
