The Products


Renewable Diesel

  •  Functionally identical to diesel fuel (see ASTM D975 and D396).  

Renewable Diesel is chemically distinct from Biodiesel (ASTM D6751), and has a higher energy value (44 vs 38 MJ/kg).  

  • Taking the "fossil" out of diesel:  See Neste's video which explains how renewable diesel is a 100% replacement for fossil diesel. (Neste is the world's biggest supplier of renewable diesel.)



  •  A high-carbon solid which is an obligatory co-product of the hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) process by which the renewable diesel is generated.  
  • Commercial markets for hydrochar are in development and anticipated to be similar to the market for biochar made from pyrolysis.
