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.
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.
