Renewable Diesel

Sustainable, Non-Fossil Fuel

A Seamless Transition

Sprague has championed advancements in transportation and heating fuels to reduce environmental footprints for its customers. As a natural progression, Renewable Diesel (RD) emerges as the next step in reducing emissions and embracing renewable energy without the need for costly investments in new infrastructure. This advanced, no carbon, ultra-low sulfur drop-in fuel replacement is designed to significantly reduce emissions. Unlike biodiesel, it offers reliable cold weather performance, and is free of sulfur, oxygen and aromatic compounds.

Renewable Diesel

Up to 75% Emissions Reduction:
Greenhouse gas (GHG) reductions compared to fossil fuel diesel


100% Sustainably Sourced:
Produced from renewable feedstocks such as used cooking oil, fats, and soybean oil


100% Compatible Drop-In Solution:
Meets ASTM D-975 specifications, requires no blending

Engine Benefits

  • Aromatic-free is less harmful to employees, handlers & environment
  • High flash point improves safety for fueling operations and maintenance, and meets marine regulations
  • 33% less soot to plug DPF’s and reduce fuel economy
  • Reduced injector deposits
  • Maintenance costs and intervals may be reduced

Operational Continuity

  • Offers similar low risk of water absorption and microbial growth as fossil diesel
  • Good oxidative stability = long shelf life
  • Minimal to zero risk of filter blocking
  • Non-polar, will not clean out debris in older fuel tanks

How does renewable diesel meet emission reduction goals?

Renewable diesel is an advanced, low carbon, ultra-low sulfur drop-in fuel replacement designed to significantly reduce emissions. It can help to decrease your emissions by at least 50%*

What is the difference between biofuel and renewable fuel?

Through the transesterification process, feedstocks are converted into fatty acid methyl esters (FAME)

Renewable Diesel:
Through hydrotreating and isomerization, feedstocks are converted into pure diesel hydrocarbons
