FOR THE ENERGY TRANSITION

What is Biodiesel?BIODIESEL

Biodiesel, also known as FAME, and renewable diesel, also known as HDRD, are turnkey options that reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions while allowing you to run your existing fleet and equipment.

Biodiesel, often referred to as FAME (fatty acid methyl ester) is considered a renewable energy source, produced from organic matter or biomass such as corn, sugar, vegetable oils, or waste feedstocks through a process called esterification. Biodiesel must be blended with traditional diesel and is offered in blends of B-5 to B-20 (5-20% biogenic).

Benefits of Biodiesel:

Emissions: B20 fuel offers a CO2 emissions reduction (wheel to well) of 15% when compared to traditional diesel, helping you reduce your operational greenhouse gas emissions and footprint.

  • Can be used in OEM approved engines
  • Higher flashpoint which makes it safer if spilled
  • Improved lubricity
  • High cetane number
  • Lower sulphur and aromatics
  • Bio-genic portion exempt from Scope 1 emissions (as per GRI framework)
  • Products meet Canadian fuel standards CGSB 3.520 (B1-B5) and CGSB 3.522 (B6-B20) and American fuel standards ASTM D975 (B0-B5) and ASTM D7467 (B6-B20)

Key note: Biodiesel has a cloud point of O degrees Celsius +/- 5 degrees Celsius making it a ‘seasonal’ product that cannot be used, nor is available, during cold months.

Renewable DieselWhat is Renewable Diesel?

Renewable diesel, often referred to as HDRD (hydrogenated-derived renewable diesel), HVO (hydrogenated vegetable oil) or HEFA (hydrotreated esters and fatty acids) is a drop-in ready renewable energy source that can be used in exchange of traditional diesel. This product is produced using organic matter or biomass such as corn, sugar, vegetable oils or waste feedstocks and processed by hydrogenation (treated with hydrogen) making it chemically identical to traditional diesel. The product is often blended with traditional diesel and offered in blends of R-30 to R-100. Renewable diesel has CO2 emissions from 24-72% depending on its blend.

Benefits of HDRD:

HDRD (R50) offers a CO2 emissions reduction (wheel to well) of approximately 38% when compared to traditional diesel, helping you reduce your greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Does not require blending
  • No change to engine or additional preventative maintenance required
  • Almost no aromatics or sulphur
  • Bio-genic C02 portion exempt from Scope 1 emissions (as per GRI framework)
  • Wide range of cloud points possible up to -20 degrees Celsius (no seasonal restrictions)
  • Products meet Canadian fuel standards (CGSB 3.517) and American fuel standards (ASTM D975)

MEASURE AND REPORT LIFECYCLE (LCA) GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS WITH FUEL MANAGEMENT ONLINE

FMO’s sustainability reporting is a foundational feature that ensures quality wheel to well reporting of GHG emissions. The FMO platform is up to date with the real-time fuel data and carbon intensity values required to measure and calculate lifecycle GHG emissions data.

4Refuel’s FMO (Fuel Management Online) reporting now accurately measures lifecycle (LCA) green house gas (GHG) emissions associated with the use of traditional and renewable fuel products.

Access to all your fleet emissions data in one place enables data-driven decision-making to achieve corporate emissions reduction and sustainability targets.
