Fuelling the future through sustainable sources

Improving sustainability is key to securing the future of motor racing and using new, more sustainable energy sources to fuel vehicles will play a significant role in helping organisers achieve this crucial goal.

Silvey Fleet and BWOC will together be helping the BTRC significantly reduce CO2 emissions over the course of the 2024 season through the use of Renewable Diesel (HVO). Made from 100% renewable and sustainable feedstocks, it can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% net. It is also a safe and easy alternative that can be used in place of conventional diesel without having to make any engine modifications and many vehicle manufacturers have approved it for usage in their engines.

Transitioning to greener alternative fuels  

The road transport industry is undergoing a major shift as it transitions to new, more sustainable energy sources. Silvey Fleet and BWOC are playing their part in this evolution by offering innovative new products and services, such as Renewable Diesel (HVO), EV charging and carbon offsetting, to help customers reduce CO2 emissions.

Silvey Fleet, a leading fuel card and fleet management solutions provider, offers Renewable Diesel (HVO) on several of its fuel card networks, providing customers with easy access to this greener fuel alternative.
