Renewable Diesel in Combustion Engines

Renewable diesel fuel is a new fuel source that is being introduced into the market space. It has a similar composition to petroleum diesel, making it suitable for use in diesel engines. Its performance in various fuel properties, such as cetane, lubricity, and corrosion inhibition, will depend on the specific fuel source. In many cases, improving these fuel characteristics will require fuel additives.

Extensive compatibility and no harms testing has been conducted with Afton’s diesel additive technologies and renewable diesel. These technologies have been validated for use in renewable diesel as they are completely soluble and provide protection and performance against injector deposit build-up.

Afton Chemical is committed to providing our customers with leading technologies to improve fuel economy, reduce emissions, and extend the life of engines and equipment in all market fuels.
