Renewable diesel (HVO)
Renewable diesel has a similar chemical composition to fossil diesel. It is made entirely from renewable raw materials and can be used as a drop-in fuel. In the United States, Neste sells renewable fuel branded as Neste MY Renewable Diesel™.
You can use renewable diesel in all diesel-powered vehicles without modifying the engine, investing in new vehicles, or investing in new fueling equipment. The use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel can also reduce emissions of nitrogen oxide (NOx) and particulate matter (PM), especially in older vehicles with less advanced engine technology. Neste MY Renewable diesel works just like fossil diesel: it will perform optimally at temperatures as low as -4°F (-20°C) for winter grade, and under proper conditions, can be stored for many years. Renewable diesel is fully interchangeable with fossil diesel, so it is possible to blend renewable diesel with fossil diesel in any proportion or use it in its neat form.
