Australia-first 100% renewable diesel trial kicks off

February 27, 2019 |

In Australia, the Australian-first trial using 100 per cent renewable diesel to fuel a Scania test engine is up and running thanks to the Palaszczuk Government’s Advance Queensland Industry Attraction Fund.

Southern Oil’s Advanced Biofuels Pilot Plant at Yarwun, near Gladstone, is pioneering the refining of renewable diesel fuel made from waste plastic, old vehicle tyres, agriculture and forestry waste, and biosolids.

The high-end Scania V8 test engine is being used in its power generation configuration for the testing – allowing assessment of exhaust emissions, performance and response, fuel efficiency, cost and engine lifetime.
