On October 11, 2022, in the name of the Association for the Production and Use of Biofuels, the ceremonial opening of the Solar2009 fuel station was held, which is the first station in Slovakia to offer ecodiesel B30 (contains 30% biodiesel and 70% diesel).

As part of the biojazda.sk (Biodrive) project, on behalf of the Envien Group, we presented the replacement of our vehicle fleet with vehicles running on ecodiesel B30. We want to take a lead in greening of transport and change fuel from standard diesel B7 to B30 in the entire fleet, 75 vehicles. We will manage to save approximately 35 tonnes of CO2 emissions in one year. From October 12, refueling with B30 fuel is available to all interested employees of our companies, as well as the general public, who have the appropriate type of vehicle compatible with B30 fuel. The compatibility of the vehicle's engine with B30 fuel must be checked on the car's fuel tank lid or in the owner's manual.


As part of the opening ceremony, we had an opportunity to introduce the production process of biofuels and feed materials to our guests: Mr. Kmeť, the state secretary of the Ministry of Transport and Construction, and representatives of The Slovak Hydrometeorological Institute (SHMÚ). We also had a fruitful discussion on the topic of biomobility and principles of technological neutrality. In addition to the practical introduction of alternative fuels, we also addressed the potential of fuels with a higher proportion of biocomponents (B30, B100, B20) in meeting the ambitious goals of decarbonization of transport.

The event was organized by the Development Division team coordinated by Mr. Vincent Nemček.
