The 2M Group of Companies, in collaboration with Suttons Tankers as one of its major selected logistics partners, announced May 20 that it has embarked on a six-month trial using hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), also known as renewable diesel, as an alternative fuel aimed at decreasing carbon emissions.

 


As key players in the chemical and logistics industries, the 2M Group of Companies and Suttons Tankers said they jointly recognize their responsibility to sustainability and the ways in which they can work toward a greener future.

 


In this latest trial, dedicated vehicles from the 2M water-treatment business, delivering critical products to water-treatment sites across the U.K., will run on a blend comprising 37 percent HVO instead of conventional diesel.

 


Suttons Tankers recently trialed the usage of HVO on a selection of its fleet, which proved to reduce carbon emissions by 80 percent.

 


The first four weeks of the trial with 2M Group of Companies has seen 3.8 metric tons of emissions reductions so far, which is equivalent to driving a gasoline-powered car for more than 12,000 kilometers.

 


HVO is a sustainable fuel source with a significantly lower carbon footprint than diesel and is compatible with existing diesel engines without any need for modifications.

 


Suttons is using HVO certified by Zemo Partnership and the sustainability of the feedstocks and supply chain is certified by the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification System GmbH.

 


“We are delighted to be trialing hydrotreated vegetable oil as an alternative fuel in our vehicles,” said Mark Johnson-Treherne, the logistics manager for the 2M Group of Companies. “By entering this six-month trial with Suttons, we are aiming to reduce our environmental footprint with innovative solutions while providing the same quality service for our customers.”

 


Darran Ledsom, the business director for 2M water treatment, added, “The water-utility customer base has challenged key suppliers to provide innovative and sustainable reductions in greenhouse gases across its supply chain. This project allows us to support these goals and further promote the core valves of our water-treatment business and 2M Group.”

 


Rajat Bhardwaj, ESG manager for Suttons Tankers, said, “We are excited to be a part of this significant milestone in our sustainability journey. The results of our HVO-fuel trial highlight the strides we are making towards reducing our environmental impact and embracing cleaner-energy alternatives. The reductions in net greenhouse-gas emissions demonstrate how effective HVO fuel is for driving sustainability within our operations. This reaffirms our commitment to integrating environmental considerations into our growth strategy. Moving forward, we remain dedicated to advancing sustainability initiatives that benefit Suttons, its customers and the communities it serves.”
