Green diesel—which is also known by a number of terms such as renewable diesel, hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO), hydrogenation-derived renewable diesel (HDRD) or hydroprocessed esters and fatty acids (HEFA)—is a second-generation biodiesel, which itself is also known by the chemical name fatty acid methyl ester (FAME). Green diesel differs from biodiesel in the way it is produced., biodiesel is processed using transesterification, while green or renewable diesel is processed using fractional distillation, the traditional process used to produce fossil-origin diesel fuel. Green diesel is produced through a catalytic reaction that involves the hydroprocessing, decarboxylation, and/or decarbonylation
of triacylglycerols derived from renewable feedstock. While research into how to produce green/renewable diesel through a variety of other methods is ongoing, currently, hydrotreating is the most accepted and commercially available method. Green/renewable diesel currently meets the ASTM D975 specification in the U.S. and EN 590 in Europe.

The figure below shows the basic difference in the green diesel and biodiesel production processes, which yield products of different chemical compositions.The production process of green diesel is similar to that of petroleum diesel.

This similarity results in products of a similar chemical composition, which is why green diesel can be used with existing diesel engines; and it also allows green diesel to have a higher blend ratio with petroleum diesel (technically, there is no blend limit). Green diesel also offers several advantages over biodiesel, including lower greenhouse gas emissions.
