The different types of Diesel
Red Diesel or ORD
In France, since November 2011, legislation requires all non-road mobile machinery and refrigerated truck-mounted units to consume Diesel with a sulphur content of less than 10 mg/kg. As a result, they can no longer use domestic heating oil (Gasoil) and must be supplied with Red Diesel.
The ORD, coloured red, meets EN 590 standard. It offers greater prospects for profitability than Diesel because it opens up the right to more advantageous taxation.
Other European countries also use an untaxed Diesel for refrigeration units such as Belgium, Great Britain, Ireland and Spain. The AS 24 network distributes this Diesel in all these countries.
