Neste Oil expands sale of Neste Pro diesel to Lithuania; minimum 15% blend of NExBTL renewable diesel
Neste Oil’s premium-quality Neste Pro Diesel—which contains a minimum of 15% of NEXBTL renewable diesel—is now available in Lithuania. It will be distributed through the company’s local retail network and its 51 stations. Up until now, Neste Pro Diesel was only available in Finland.
Using Neste Pro Diesel can reduce fuel consumption by up to 5%, depending on the vehicle, driving style, and conditions under which it is used, the company says. The fuel also improves overall vehicle performance and reduces tailpipe emissions, such as NOx, particulates, and hydrocarbons. Neste Pro Diesel is used as the first fill fuel in Mercedes-Benz A-Class cars manufactured in Finland.
The Baltic region, and the Baltic countries in particular, is a key market area for Neste Oil. Our strategic goal is to be the preferred partner for cleaner fuels across the region, and extending the distribution of Neste Pro Diesel to Lithuania is very much in line with this.—Panu Kopra, Neste Oil’s Vice President, Baltic Rim
Neste Pro Diesel is produced at Neste Oil’s Porvoo refinery in Finland and is compatible with all diesel engines. Using Neste Pro Diesel can reduce fuel consumption and emissions, as well as enhance engine performance. Its excellent low-temperature properties also result in better vehicle reliability during the winter.
Neste Pro Diesel is the first fuel to comply with the WWFC 5 specification drawn up as part of the Worldwide Fuel Charter. Fuels are expected to meet strict requirements under WWFC 5, designed to ensure the long-term, trouble-free operation of engines and vehicle emission control systems. The WWFC 5 specification excludes conventional FAME-type biodiesel completely.
