Neste MY Renewable Diesel – high-performing low-carbon biofuel
Neste MY Renewable Diesel, made from 100% renewable raw materials, results in up to 90%* less greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions over the fuel’s life cycle when compared with fossil diesel. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is fully compatible with all Safire products. The proprietary NEXBTL technology used for refining Neste MY Renewable Diesel is an innovation developed and patented by Neste.
Neste MY has the same chemical composition as fossil diesel. This means that the fuel is a drop-in replacement for fossil diesel. The fuel can be blended in any ratio with fossil diesel – or used neat (100% concentration).
Unlike fossil diesel, Neste MY Renewable Diesel contains no aromatics or impurities. This allows the fuel to combust with maximum efficiency. The high cetane number ensures an efficient and clean combustion, which means it keeps the engine cleaner than traditional biodiesel (FAME). Therefore, fleets that use Neste MY Renewable Diesel typically require less maintenance.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is well-suited for very cold weather conditions (up to -34°C). Its cold performance is better than that of fossil diesel, as the high cetane number gives better start-up and throttle response.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel can also be stored over long periods of time without deterioration in quality or water accumulation. For businesses with a lot of variety in usage during different seasons, this can bring substantial savings in fuel costs.
