What is the difference between Renewable Diesel and Bio Diesel?

Renewable diesel, also known as HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil), is often mistaken for biodiesel or FAME (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester). Their primary distinctions lie within their chemical structures, performance in cold conditions, and storage attributes.

Renewable Diesel undergoes a hydrotreatment process resulting in an HVO diesel closely resembling petroleum diesel chemically. This similarity enables renewable diesel to be used in diesel engines at concentrations up to 100% or blended in any proportion with fossil diesel.

Biodiesel, containing oxygen, differs from both fossil and renewable diesel, hence unable to act as a complete substitute. Most Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) limit biodiesel content to 20%, with some permitting only 5%.

In essence, renewable diesel and biodiesel are often mistaken despite their differences. Renewable diesel, an HVO fuel, mirrors fossil diesel’s chemical structure closely, whereas biodiesel, a FAME product, is not a hydrocarbon.

Though both originate from renewable sources, their chemical compositions diverge. Renewable diesel, a second-generation biofuel, offers greater versatility. Advanced production methods allow it to be used as a direct solution without requiring blending.

Due to biodiesel’s composition, it’s less compatible at full concentration with existing diesel engines. Most OEMs recommend blending biodiesel with renewable or petroleum diesel at concentrations of 20% or lower.
