We’ve got it in sweden, maybe 20% of garages sell it. Tried some in my berlingo and it worked ok. But as the price is the same no-one is exactly going to search it out or rush to use it.

Yes and no ! It's a different process, reading about HVO it seems to reduce many of the problems that are aimed at diesels at present. Particulates are well down, NO2 is reduced etc. etc., generally better all round. Not available at the pump in the UK but bulk deliveries are available. More expensive than ordinary diesel at the moment, but with government help (breath not held) it shouldn't be.

More than a bit (a lot!) wordy, but some of this is interesting : https://www.neste.com/sites/default/files/attachments/neste_renewable_diesel_handbook.pdf
