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.
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.
India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world and will continue to enjoy the demographic dividend for few decades. Energy is a critical input towards raising the standard of living of citizens. The energy strategy of country aims to chart the way forward to meet the Government’s recent ambitious announcements in the energy domain such as electrification of all census villages by 2019, 24x7 electricity & 175 GW of renewable energy capacity by 2022, reduction in energy emissions intensity by 33%-35% by 2030 and share of non-fossil fuel based capacity in the electricity mix is aimed at above 40% by 2030.
Conventional or fossil fuel resources are limited, non-renewable, polluting and, therefore, need to be used prudently. On the other hand, renewable energy resources are indigenous, non-polluting and virtually inexhaustible. India is endowed with abundant renewable energy resources. Therefore, their use should be encouraged in every possible way. The National Policy on Biofuels - 2018 builds on the achievements of the earlier National Policy on Biofuels and sets the new agenda consistent with the redefined role of emerging developments in the Renewable Sector.
Government has prepared a road map to reduce the import dependency in Oil & Gas sector by adopting a five pronged strategy which includes, Increasing Domestic Production, Adopting biofuels & Renewables, Energy Efficiency Norms, Improvement in Refinery Processes and Demand Substitution. This envisages a strategic role for biofuels in the Indian Energy basket. Biofuels are derived from renewable biomass resources.

The Policy aims to increase usage of biofuels in the energy and transportation sectors of the country during the coming decade. The Policy aims to utilize, develop and promote domestic feedstock and its utilization for production of biofuels thereby increasingly substitute fossil fuels while contributing to National Energy Security, Climate Change mitigation, apart from creating new employment opportunities in a sustainable way.
Simultaneously, the policy will also encourage the application of advance technologies for generation of biofuels. The field of Biofuels has been growing rapidly over last few years and new technology innovations are taking place.
