UPM has developed a new renewable diesel fuel UPM BioVerno. Before entering the market, intensive testing is required to ensure functionality of the novel fuel.
- VTT planned and executed a 7-month on-road field-test with UPM BioVerno, using a fleet of Volkswagen cars provided by VV-Auto Group.
- The fleet tests focused on the effects of UPM’s renewable diesel on engine power and exhaust emissions, fuel consumption, as well as overall functionality and driveability.
A turn-key solution for a customer without own basic expertise.
With the expertise of VTT, UPM was able to verify that their new renewable diesel fuel is well-suited for all diesel vehicles and wide commercialisation.
