the liquid of the latest diesel innovation, Liquid MY renewable diesel, promises to reduce the motorist's greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%.
the Reason is produced accessible. Liquid MY manufactured entirely from waste and residues, so in circulation of carbon and that carbon dioxide levels do not increase in the atmosphere. A clear, colorless and odorless end product had the same characteristics as fossil diesel, but does not contain any sulfur and aromatic hydrocarbons.
Raw materials can animal or vegetable origin, fatty acids containing waste, such as fish - and meat industry waste fats and vegetable oils. They bring Fluid production plants, almost all from the mainland.
- we have a very diverse, growing set of sources. We start, in time, palm oil, since it was technically the easiest raw material. Product development expertise has grown and we have been able to move almost completely plant - and animal waste - and tähderasvoihin, told the Fluid head of department Teemu Sarjovaara .
Although the raw material spectrum is large, is the end product always the same. The main differences are the pre - processing and cleaning stages, in which different raw materials are processed in different ways. This Liquid MY renewable diesel stands out from the so-called first generation of FAME-type biodieseleistä, which are very raw material dependent.
- Another big difference is in the manufacturing process. Where FAME-type biodiesel, the manufacture is simple, and is successful in principle, although the car in the garage, based on the Liquid MYn produced significantly more complex processing techniques, Sarjovaara explain.ham fat have 18 times around the world
One of the most visible Fluid MY renewable diesel associated with the rapture of the ham fat collection ham trick, which is arranged now for the third christmas. Liquid is one of the 14 rapture of the system partner.
in Practice, almost every finn was able to bring chilled ham fat milk cans in the collection point, which was, inter alia, the K-stores ' context. Fat was used the Liquid in MY renewable diesel manufacture.
- This is a globally unique phenomenon, which we have in Finland pioneers, Sarjovaara tell.
This year the collection was attended by a record number, about 185 000 households. Collected ham fat was made the Liquid in MY renewable diesel amount, which can be run on almost 18 times around the earth.
the whole scale it is certainly small, but it is an important number.
- the most Significant here are not prepared diesel volumes but the fact that so many finns have been collecting fat you recovered and didn't want to participate in the collection. It tells us the change in consumption behavior. People really want to be involved in the fight against climate change, Sarjovaara rejoices.
One of about six kilograms of ham fat can be manufactured renewable diesel with an average of three kilometres to the required amount.Good or bad diesel?
the Recent discussions of diesel cars and the drivers have received negative attention due to the particular older diesel vehicles in the high nitrogen oxide and particulate emissions. For this reason, many car purchase plans consider, is it worth diesel no purchase at all.
I Understand the debate well, eye movement is a subject that touches us all. Car will be invested during the life of often as much as the housing, so the question of what kind of car is worth buying, it is significant and important, Sarjovaara said.
He wants to emphasize that all diesel cars should not be stigmatized, but every diesel owner can choices affect the cost of the game its climate change impact.
the most important thing would be to get the Finnish you of the highest quality and new equipment. The latest exhaust gas aftertreatment device equipped diesel passenger car in the middle emissions are often in fact lower than petrol-driven passenger cars.
- the average age of a Car in Finland is 12 years, so above all, we should get the cars to reappear. New diesel cars are already redeemed by the purity of the promises of the field conditions, Sarjovaara explain.
Also, greenhouse gas emissions, as measured by the new diesel cars new petrol cars more environmentally friendly choice.
- you Have to remember that diesel engine efficiency gasoline engine for the better, and diesel vehicles for greenhouse emissions can be significantly affected by choosing the renewable fuel. Gas cars do not have a similar option at the moment. New diesel vehicles and renewable fuels are an excellent combination, which can affect both the middle - that greenhouse emissions here and now.renewable future
the Liquid in MY renewable diesel distribution network has grown significantly this year and last, and climate-friendly diesel is now available almost throughout the country. At the same time consumer awareness has grown.
- we will become the feedback is positive, and understanding and awareness of the product seems to be growing constantly. Most of the challenges are still there, that renewable diesel mix is sensitive to biodiesel. This in itself is not surprising, as these are spoken between professional circles bag still pleasantly confused, Sarjovaara said.
See here, where is located the nearest Liquid MY distribution station.
the Liquid in MY renewable diesel can move to use without any modification to the vehicles. It is fully compatible with current diesel quality, i.e. it can be added to the fuel tank, although the tank would still be fossil diesel left.
popularity of growth the company is prepared for, inter alia, by preparing it in Porvoo, but also Singapore and Rotterdam in the Netherlands production plants. Singapore's refinery expansion was made at the turn of the final investment decision.
- the Singapore expansion is for us a significant production capacity increase. Year by year we are able to provide more renewable diesel and, thus, enable our customers to transport greenhouse emissions.
