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 and can be used in diesel engines. HDRD is a renewable energy source that can be used in exchange of traditional diesel to reduce greenhouse gasses and carbon emissions. It 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, R-50, or R-100 (unblended). Renewable diesel has CO2 emissions reductions from 24-85% compared to traditional diesel, depending on its blend.
BENEFITS OF RENEWABLE DIESEL
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.
