Features and Benefits
|100% hydrocarbon renewable fuel||Virtually identical chemically and physically to petroleum diesel yet delivers enhanced emission, performance and sustainability benefits of biofuel.|
|Easy to use||Can be used in existing diesel engines without modification in concentrations of up to 100% and requires no changes to shipping, handling and storing practices.|
|Easy blending with petroleum diesel or biodiesel||Can be blended at varying concentrations based on economics or other factors. Blends with biodiesel to create a 100% renewable, low-emission, high-performance fuel.|
|Increased Cetane||Higher Cetane indicates quicker and more complete ignition of the fuel, which improves efficiency, reduces emissions and allows for easier starting and smoother running.|
|Lower carbon intensity score||Because renewable diesel can be produced from a wide array of organic feedstocks, its lower carbon intensity score can help meet regulatory requirements.|
|Reduced emissions||Compared to ULSD, renewable diesel reduces total hydrocarbons by more than 10 percent, particulate matter by nearly 40 percent, carbon monoxide by 25 percent and nitrogen oxides by 15 percent.*|
