Neste MY Renewable Diesel Rockin’ It This Month

Submitted by on May 14, 2018 – 10:33 amNo Comment

by Helena Tavares Kennedy (Biofuels Digest)  Neste reaches 1B gallons renewable diesel sale, runs in fire trucks, ambulances and school vehicles  —  In Texas, Neste U.S., Inc. is celebrating its 1 billionth gallon of Neste MY Renewable Diesel sold in North America which has effectively helped reduce more than seven million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions in the Earth’s atmosphere. This is the equivalent of removing 1.6 million passenger vehicles from the road for one year.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a low-carbon diesel produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials, such as waste animal and fish fat, vegetable oils and used cooking oil. It emits up to 80 percent less carbon when compared to petroleum diesel. Unlike biodiesel, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a drop-in fuel that requires no blending and is compatible with all diesel engines.

With the goal of empowering commercial fleet vehicles, city sanitation, utility companies, and schools to become more environmentally responsible by making clean and renewable fuel readily available, Neste has been leading the charge on creating cleaner renewable fuels and supplying the North American market since 2012, according to their press release. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is available to public and private fleets in California through authorized distributors.

The company’s efforts have been recognized in a number of sustainability indexes. Most recently, Neste ranked second in the 2018 Global 100 list of the world’s most sustainable companies.

In California, the Pasadena Fire Department has switched much of its fleet of apparatus from operating on petroleum diesel to using Neste MY Renewable Diesel. 

IPC (USA), Inc., headquartered in Santa Ana, California, is the exclusive distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to the Pasadena Fire Department.

In California, Pittsburg Unified School District, a public-school district based in Contra Costa County, has switched some of its vehicles from operating on petroleum diesel to using Neste MY Renewable Diesel as well.

If you look a little further back this year, it’s even more impressive. As reported in the Digest in March, Valtra became the first tractor factory in the world to begin using Neste MY Renewable Diesel as the start-up fuel for all new tractors.

As reported in the Digest in April, a San Francisco Bay area sightseeing cruise company switched its entire fleet of vessels from operating on conventional diesel to using 100% Neste MY Renewable Diesel.   READ MORE
