Bio-based naphtha (bio-naphtha) is a by-product from the manufacture of Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO), otherwise known as renewable diesel and  Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) production. It can also be produced as a as a standalone product via gasification. Bio-naphtha can be used as a direct substitute for fossil-based naphtha, either as a gasoline blending component or to produce renewable plastic.

Producers use a wide variety of feedstocks for HVO and SAF including used cooking oil, vegetable oils such as palm and rapeseed, and waste residues from sectors such as wood pulp production (known as crude tall oil, or CTO) and animal fats. With increasing producer capacities in HVO and SAF, production of bio-naphtha is growing as part of the output and finding wider use as a “second generation” biofuel and as a feedstock to make ethylene, propylene, and butadiene for chemicals and plastics.
