Neste Renewable Diesel handbook
NESTE the only way is forward
This booklet provides information on Neste Renewable Diesel, in Europe classified as a Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO), and its use in diesel engines.
The hydrotreating of vegetable oils as well as suitable waste and residue fat fractions to produce HVO is a quite new but already mature commercial scale manufacturing process. It is based on oil refining know-how and is used for the production of biofuels for diesel engines.
In the process, hydrogen is used to remove oxygen from the triglyceride vegetable oil molecules and to split the triglyceride into three separate chains, thus creating hydrocarbons which are similar to existing diesel fuel components. This allows blending in any desired ratio without any concerns regarding fuel quality.Sorry! This document can only be viewed by Bioenergy Association members.
