DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Green Diesel: Further Developments in the Alternative Fuel Space" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
Green diesel-which is also known by a number of terms such as renewable diesel, hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), hydrogenation-derived renewable diesel (HDRD) or hydro processed esters and fatty acids (HEFA)-is second-generation biodiesel, which itself is also known by the chemical name fatty acid methyl ester (FAME). Green diesel differs from biodiesel in the way it is produced., biodiesel is processed using transesterification, while green or renewable diesel is processed using fractional distillation, the traditional process used to produce fossil-origin diesel fuel.
Green diesel is produced through a catalytic reaction that involves the hydroprocessing, decarboxylation, and/or decarbonylation of triacylglycerols derived from renewable feedstock. While research into how to produce green/renewable diesel through a variety of other methods is ongoing, currently, hydrotreating is the most accepted and commercially available method. Green/renewable diesel currently meets the ASTM D975 specification in the U.S. and EN 590 in Europe.
