Green (or renewable) diesel is a biofuel that offers several advantages over biodiesel, so many refineries are increasingly including it in their production portfolios. The downstream portion of the refining process is very similar to traditional diesel hydrotreating processes, making modifications less onerous than switching to the production of a totally different fuel. While similar, there are some process differences between green diesel and standard diesel that are more difficult to handle for the critical control valves in the unit. This article discusses the green diesel process, and it offers suggestions for choosing the best valves for reliable, safe and profitable production. Bio
