Renewable Fuels for a Sustainable Future
Renewable fuels are produced from renewable raw materials. Montana Renewables produces its products from a combination of different waste or renewable feedstock materials including vegetable oils, animal fats, grease, algae, and others.
Utilizing renewable feedstocks provides a sustainable alternative to traditional, non-renewable resources such as petroleum. These feedstocks offer a lower Carbon Intensity (CI) compared to petroleum-based diesel without sacrificing performance.
Sustainable Aviation Fuel
Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is a fuel derived from renewable resources that enables a reduction in net life cycle carbon dioxide emissions compared to conventional fuels. SAF is the preferred, now commonly used term for non-petroleum synthesized jet fuel components produced to the definitions in ASTM D7566.
Renewable Diesel (RD) is a biomass-derived transportation fuel suitable for use in diesel engines. It meets the ASTM D975 specification for petroleum in the United States and EN 590 in Europe.
Renewable Naphtha (RN) — also known as biogasoline or “green” gasoline, is a biomass-derived transportation fuel suitable for use in spark-ignition engines. It meets the ASTM D4814 specification in the United States and EN 228 in Europe.
Renewable Hydrogen — also known as “green” hydrogen, is produced by splitting water into hydrogen and oxygen. Montana Renewables is constructing a new hydrogen plant that will collect the hydrogen gases from our Renewable Diesel reactor and recycle the hydrogen for reuse within the facility using a technology currently patent pending.
