Westfleisch converts truck fleet to climate-friendly diesel from AGRAVIS

Wetralog, the logistics experts of the Westfleisch Group, are now giving priority to climate-friendly diesel fuel in their truck fleet. The cooperative company from Münster, which specializes in food and live animal logistics, will in future fill up the 26 tractors at its company filling station in Lübbecke with the Bionergy HVO100 from AGRAVIS Raiffeisen AG. The vehicles at the Wetralog site in Coesfeld will obtain the AGRAVIS product from the Railand Raiffeisen AG filling station in Dülmen.

Westfleisch converts truck fleet to climate-friendly diesel from AGRAVIS

"We are very happy and proactive about making this change because it allows us to actively shape the energy transition and save considerable amounts of CO2", says Wetralog Managing Director Jürgen Wemhoff. AGRAVIS's climate-friendly Bionergy diesel consists of 100 percent biological residues and waste materials. Compared to conventional diesel fuel, CO2 emissions are reduced by up to 90 percent. According to Wemhoff, this measure also contributes to the sustainability aspect of the mission statement of the parent company Westfleisch. As part of the holistic corporate orientation, the cooperative is committed to continuously improving its energy and environmental performance.
                                                                               
The close partnership between the cooperative companies AGRAVIS and Westfleisch has been in place for many years, not only in the agricultural value chain but also in the energy sector. AGRAVIS has so far supplied Wetralog with 1.3 million liters of conventional diesel fuel per year. This is now being replaced by HVO100. AGRAVIS supplies 1.1 million liters to the company filling station in Lübbecke, where a 50,000-liter tank is available. The annual requirement of the Wetralog trucks at the Coesfeld site is 200,000 liters.

"We are pleased with Wetralog's decision and look forward to supporting the company's sustainable orientation", emphasizes Frederik Volbracht, Head of Fuels and Combustion at AGRAVIS. The climate-friendly diesel from AGRAVIS is a very simple and, above all, immediately effective way to do more for climate protection and make a contribution to the energy transition. Bionergy diesel has comparable cold properties to conventional diesel fuel and can therefore also be filled up in winter. "With significantly reduced emissions, the consumption of fuel and AdBlue remains unchanged", says Volbracht, listing further advantages. The changeover also has no impact on the driving behavior of the trucks. "This was also confirmed in the test phase, when we filled three trucks with Bionergy HVO100 for several weeks", says Jürgen Wemhoff.
