Fast facts: renewable diesel vs biodiesel

Renewable diesel and biodiesel both come from renewable sources. However, biodiesel (a Fatty Acid Methyl Ester (FAME) product) is not a hydrocarbon. 

This gives renewable diesel – or Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) – a clear advantage. As a pure hydrocarbon, it is chemically similar to fossil diesel. Which means this evolution in biofuel can be used in any diesel engine without any modifications, neat (R99) or blended at any ratio. 

Plus, its high cetane number allows the fuel to combust with maximum efficiency, and keeps the engine cleaner than traditional biodiesel.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel works. It cuts the GHG emissions by up to 75%* – reducing your impact on the climate. 

It has the edge over fossil diesel in cutting other emissions too. 

  • Up to 33% lower levels of fine particulates**

  • Up to 30% less hydrocarbons (HC)

  • Up to 24% lower carbon monoxide (CO) emissions

  • Up to 9% less nitrogen oxides (NOx)**

  • Reduced levels of polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH)

FAME biofuels and full electric alternatives can cut GHG emissions. However, both solutions involve capital investment. 

You can refuel your fleet with Neste MY Renewable Diesel today and – without making any additional investment in infrastructure or modifications – cut your greenhouse gas emissions. Instantly. 

The benefits of renewable diesel (R99) are obvious. For more data and insights on switching to Neste MY Renewable Diesel, explore our dedicated whitepapers.


What are the advantages of renewable diesel compared to fossil diesel?

Neste MY Renewable Diesel cuts your GHG (CO2e) emissions by up to 75%* over its lifecycle compared to fossil diesel. 

It delivers the same high performance and range as fossil diesel without sulfur, oxygen, aromatic compounds, or other impurities – leading to purer, cleaner combustion.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel has a high cetane number. This means less exhaust emissions, typically reducing the impact on particle filters and potentially saving on fleet maintenance costs. It starts up better than fossil fuel in cold conditions too, and runs perfectly down to -4°F. 

Unlike biodiesel, Neste MY Renewable Diesel also does not attract water. With proper handling and storage, there is minimal risk of deterioration or microbial growth – ensuring you can safely store it for long periods. 

Can I fill my car with Neste MY Renewable diesel?

Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a drop-in fuel. Its similar chemical composition to fossil diesel means you can pour it into the tank of any diesel vehicle or piece of equipment (including passenger cars) without any engine modifications or investment in infrastructure – and immediately start cutting GHG emissions.

What is Neste MY Renewable Diesel (R99) made from?

Neste MY Renewable Diesel is made from 100% renewable raw materials such as waste and residues. 

It is an HVO100 product – otherwise known as HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) in its purest form – and meets the EN15940 specification for paraffinic diesel fuel.
