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).
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.
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.
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.
