Reduce GHG emissions, not performance

Neste MY Renewable Diesel Lowers Your CO2 Emissions

Neste MY Renewable DieselTM (R99 diesel) is a Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) made from 100% sustainably sourced renewable raw materials such as used cooking oil and animal fat from food industry waste. It is fully compatible with all diesel engines and current diesel fuel distribution infrastructure – from refinery to fueling service stations and end-users. Neste MY Renewable Diesel fuel has a similar chemical composition to fossil diesel. This means that it is a drop-in replacement for fossil diesel. A drop-in fuel can be used without any modifications, neat or blended at any ratio. 
The use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG or CO2e) emissions by up to 75% over the fuel’s life cycle when compared to fossil diesel. Make a difference today by switching to renewable diesel fuel.

Renewable diesel vs biodiesel

Renewable diesel and biodiesel are often confused, but they are not the same. Renewable diesel is a pure hydrocarbon diesel fuel chemically very similar to fossil diesel, and is also known as Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) fuel, whereas biodiesel is a Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) product which is not a hydrocarbon.

Although both fuels are produced from renewable raw materials, they are chemically different. Renewable diesel – a second generation biofuel – is far more versatile. Advanced production technologies ensure that renewable diesel is a drop-in solution that can be used in a pure form, with no blending required.

Biodiesel’s composition makes it less compatible with existing diesel engines at full concentration, and most OEMs recommend that biodiesel be blended with renewable diesel or fossil diesel at concentrations of 20% or less.
