Indizel (Renewable Diesel) gives you a far superior performance when compared to the regular diesel available in the market. Indizel (Renewable Diesel) gives a better pick-up, a quicker ignition, increased power and torque and a better mileage, way-surpassing even the premium diesels on the road.
Indizel (Renewable Diesel) conforms to world’s most stringent fuel quality and emissions requirements. It is designed to not only match but surpass engine manufacturer’s desired fuel quality standards like EN 590 (European), BS VI (Indian), World Wide Fuel Charter Category 4 Diesel standards and Euro 6 emission norms.
Indizel (Renewable Diesel) also qualifies as a 2nd generation advanced Drop-In bio-fuel as per National Policy on Biofuels, 2018 of Government of India, and can be used in any proportions without any blending compulsion on any & all diesel engines without any engine modification. Produced from renewable sources, Indizel (Renewable Diesel) is manufactured at MEE’s independent manufacturing unit in Gujarat, India.
Regular biodiesel is FAME, which is compliant with EN-14214 norms, and cannot be used without blending limits and labelling- which means that it can’t be used as a complete substitute of Diesel.
However, Indizel (Renewable Diesel) is not FAME, but an Hydro Generated Biodiesel fuel instead, and is compliant with EN-590:2013 norms – therefore, it can be used without any blending limits. Its superior qualities make it 100% substitutable of diesel, making it a truly advanced alternative for diesel.
EN 14214: This is a European standard that specifies physical norms for FAME.
EN-590: European standard that decides the standards that the physical properties of diesel fuel must adhere to.
Various internationally and nationally decided warranties are accepted by engine manufacturers for fuel.
BS VI: The Bharat Stage VI emission norms dictate stricter fuel standards for Indian engines, to reduce air pollution. These new standards stipulate a low sulphur emission of 10 ppm for vehicles. These norms are already implemented in Delhi and will soon be made mandatory across India.
With a low sulphur emission of less than 10, Indizel (Renewable Diesel) easily surpasses the BS VI standards.
EN-590: EN-590 is the European standard that decides the standards that the physical properties of diesel fuel must adhere to. It generally stipulates a minimum Cetane number of 51 and a minimum Flash point of 55 degrees Celsius.
With Cetane number of 67.4 and flash point of 69 degrees Celsius, Indizel (Renewable Diesel) easily surpasses the EN-590 standards.
According to WWFC, the Worldwide Fuel Charter of quality standards in fuel,
"Cetane is a measure of the compression ignition behaviour of a diesel fuel.Higher cetane levels enable quicker ignition. Cetane influences cold startability, exhaust emissions and combustion noise. Higher cetane generally enables improved control of ignition delay and combustion stability, especially with modern diesels which use high amounts of exhaust gas recirculation (EGR)."
With a Cetane number of 67.4, Indizel (Renewable Diesel) has one of the highest Cetane values among all known variants of diesel.
Higher Cetane means better combustion of fuel in the engine, which results in better power/torque, lesser fuel consumption / higher mileage, lesser throttle required for accelerator, hence less noise & smoother pick-up.
