Neste MY Renewable 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 and results in as much as 75-95%* less greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions over the fuel’s life cycle when compared with fossil diesel.
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 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.
Neste MY – a clean high-performance fuel
Unlike fossil diesel, Neste MY Renewable Diesel contains no aromatics or impurities. This allows the fuel to combust with maximum efficiency. The high cetane number ensures an efficient and clean combustion, which means it keeps the engine cleaner than traditional biodiesel (FAME). Therefore, fleets that use Neste MY Renewable Diesel typically require less maintenance.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is well-suited for very cold weather conditions (up to -34°C). Its cold performance is better than that of fossil diesel, as the high cetane number gives better start-up and throttle response.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel can also be stored over long periods of time without deterioration in quality or water accumulation. For businesses with a lot of variety in usage during different seasons, this can bring substantial savings in fuel costs.
