RHFs include Renewable Diesel, Coprocessed Renewable Diesel, Coprocessed Renewable Gasoline, and Sustainable Aviation Fuel.

Renewable hydrocarbon fuels offer full engine and infrastructure compatibility at any blend level, at comparable energy density to gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel.

RHFs can be produced from various biomass sources. These include oleochemicals or lipids (such as vegetable oils, animal fats, greases, and algae), cellulosic material (such as crop and forestry residues, woody biomass, and dedicated energy crops), and non-fossil synthetic co-feeds. Production facilities may be stand-alone or co-located at petroleum refineries; some of these produce lower carbon refined petroleum products by co-processing biocrude slates with petroleum crude.

The type of RHF produced depends on the technology and feedstocks. While sector growth is principally focused on RD production, these facilities generally also produce a smaller portion of gasoline grade blendstocks (such as renewable naphtha) and can continue processing RD to upgrade to SAF quality specifications.
