Renewable Diesel Handling Design, Loading, and Installation.

Although no two Renewable Diesel Loading solutions will be identical, the product itself determines much of the critical design criteria that will ensure that optimum safety and productivity can work together in harmony.

Renewable diesel, also known as hydro-treated vegetable oil (HVO), is made from natural waste like vegetable oil and grease. It’s also 100% renewable because it’s made from products that are constantly being regrown from the earth. The difference between biodiesel and renewable is how it’s processed, and they are not the same.

Because it’s hydrogenated, renewable diesel doesn’t contain oxygen, and therefore users will not encounter the challenges biodiesel presents relating to freezing temperature and storage. Thanks to hydrogenation, renewable diesel also burns cleaner than biodiesel. Also, because it has the same chemical structure as petroleum diesel, renewable diesel can be used in engines that are designed to run on conventional diesel fuel — with no blending required.

On the other hand, traditional Biodiesel is made through a chemical process called transesterification, whereby the glycerin is separated from the fat or vegetable oil. This process results in two by-products – methyl esters and glycerin. Methyl esters is the chemical name for biodiesel. The other by-product is glycerin is used in a variety of products, including soap.
