Neste MY renewable diesel is suitable for all diesel engines

Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, a low-carbon biofuel, to help our customers reduce their carbon footprint.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel, produced 100% from renewable raw materials, offers an easy way to lower traffic emissions and increase the proportion of renewable energy used in transport.

When we call Neste MY Renewable Diesel a premium-quality fuel, we are not just comparing it to other bio-alternatives. It outperforms both conventional biodiesel and even conventional fossil diesel in terms of engine performance and environmental impact.

Neste Renewable Diesel is produced in a patented vegetable oil refining process. Chemically, it entails direct catalytic hydrodeoxygenation (hydrogenolysis) of plant oils, which are triglycerides, into the corresponding alkanes and propane. The glycerol chain of the triglyceride is hydrogenated to the corresponding C3 alkane, propane — there is no glycerol sidestream. This process removes oxygen from the oil; the diesel is not an oxygenate like traditional transesterified FAME biodiesel. Catalytic isomerization into branched alkanes is then done to adjust the cloud point in order to meet winter operability requirements. As it is chemically identical to ideal conventional diesel, it requires no modification or special precautions for the engine.

Neste has estimated that the use of NExBTL diesel cuts greenhouse gas emissions by 40 to 90 percent in comparison to fossil based diesel.

Due to the chemistry of the process, the renewable diesel is pure alkane and contains no aromatics, oxygen (although oxygen would have promoted cleaner combustion) or sulfur.
