Vegetable oil fuelling Chiltern Railways trains

Passenger trains are being fuelled by vegetable oil for the first time in the UK, a train operator has said. Chiltern Railways began using hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) to power some of its fleet on Thursday. HVO is made mostly of used cooking oils and can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%, compared to diesel. Richard Allan, managing director, said the operator was determined to operate a railway that was "easier, greener and better" for its customers.
