Bolloré Energy launches "KOOLZA", a low-carbon fuel produced from rapeseed

Puteaux. 27 October 2021

Bolloré Energy has been marketing biodiesel (B100) under the name KOOLZA 100 for a number of weeks. This alternative fuel is produced solely from rapeseed grown and processed in France.

This new product is an environmentally friendly alternative to fossil diesel with an equivalent range, reducing CO2 emissions by 60% and fine particle emissions by 80%. In addition, unlike the fossil product, it is not classified as a hazardous or environmentally harmful product.

For professional customers only (carriers, rail industry, etc.), KOOLZA 100 is compatible with the majority of trucks available on the market, significantly reducing their carbon impact without the need to invest in a new fleet.

Bolloré Energy, as part of its commitment to the ecological transition, has also decided to promote the use of this fuel with its hydrocarbon transport suppliers to support the logistics of the oil products distributed. By 2022, more than 30% of deliveries on behalf of Bolloré Energy will be made by lorries using the new low-carbon fuels, with the aim of reaching 100% by 2023.

KOOLZA 100 is the latest addition to our range of special products and offers all the qualities our customers need in order to consume less and better.
