EN 590 what is it and why is it important

Recent announcements from some of the largest engine manufacturers around the world including Volvo & Mercedes-Benz, state that fuels which conform to the EN 590 standards are not only safe to use, but also desired when it comes to burning cleaner and less polluting fuels.

What is EN 590?

EN 590 is a standard published by the European Committee for Standardization that describes the physical properties that all automotive diesel fuel must meet if it is to be sold in the European Union and several other European countries.

The EN 590 had been introduced along with the European emission standards. With each of its revisions the EN 590 had been adapted to lower the sulphur content of diesel fuel – since 2007 this is called ultra low sulphur diesel as the former function of sulphur as a lubricant is absent (and needs to be replaced by additives).

What does this all mean for Oxytane

Oxytane when mixed with regular diesel conforms to EN 590 standards and is certified as such!

With this in mind, it confirms that most if not all engine manufactures would endorse or otherwise even encourage the usage of Oxytane as part of any business or organization’s fueling strategy.
