New diesel and HVO data published in NTMCalc

Finally, the recently developed and assessed diesel data for B0, B7 and HVO 100 are published. Next to come is FAME 100 as well as gas data (CNG, CBG, LNG and LBG) including corresponding specific gas vehicles.

The blend of the fuels now published are:

DieselB7EU: DieselB0EU (92,3%), RME (7%) and HVO (0,7%)

DieselB7Swe: DieselB0Swe (76%), RME (5,5%) and HVO (18,5%)

HVO100EU: Palm oil (45%), PFAD (0%), Slaughter house waste (11%), Rape seed oil (19%), Used cocking oil (25%)

HVO100Swe: Palm oil (6%), PFAD (4%), Tall oil (12%), Slaughter house waste (72%), Rape seed oil (6%)

The blends in today´s diesel fuels are changing rapidly and varies between supplier, hence presenting relevant up to data is a challenge. NTM have chosen the strategy of using historical published data on what was actually used. This leads to discrepancies with daily data, but is on the other hand built on more reliable but sometimes lagging data sources.

It should be noted that NTM have chosen well known and credible primary LCA-data bases  for all fuel components used. This may lead to discrepancies between NTM assessed fuel data emissions and official authority data. The board of NTM have discussed this problematic issue for a long time but finally decided to stick to data based on scientific and verified data sources. Read references to fuel data.

In addition to updating our data NTM also aim to harmonize the fuel data naming. By this launch this is yet not fully accomplished but the principle will be:

“Main fuel” “Bio-blend(%)” “Geographical region”

It should be noted that EU represents Europe, i.e., not only the European Union and that for database reasons the region Swe remains, but will later be replaced by SE and other two letter country codes.
