EN590 diesel is a European standard that sets specifications and requirements for automotive diesel fuel.

It covers various aspects such as fuel composition, sulfur content, cetane number, density, viscosity, cold flow properties, lubricity, stability, and biodiesel blend compatibility.

SKU: 1446 Category:

Adhering to the EN590 standard ensures the quality, performance, and environmental compliance of diesel fuel used in vehicles and helps to reduce emissions and enhance engine efficiency.

The production process of EN590 diesel involves refining crude oil, hydrotreating to remove impurities and sulfur, blending if necessary, and rigorous quality control measures. This process ensures that the diesel fuel meets the specifications outlined in the EN590 standard, including low sulfur content, specific density, viscosity, cold flow properties, and biodiesel blend compatibility. The production of EN590 diesel aims to provide a cleaner and high-quality fuel for diesel engines, promoting reduced emissions and improved engine performance.
