Neste plans to start selling diesel produced entirely from renewable raw materials at selected stations in Finland around the turn of the year. The new product offers environmentally conscious consumers and corporate customers a sustainable and easy solution for reducing traffic-borne emissions. The majority of the renewable raw materials the company uses to refine the product, consists of waste and residues.
Neste’s proprietary NEXBTL technology makes it possible to produce top-quality renewable diesel and other renewable products out of waste and residue materials and vegetable oils. Neste conducts continuous research to further expand its portfolio of sustainably produced renewable raw materials.
In addition to its significantly smaller carbon footprint, the product is of a high quality - it burns efficiently and cleanly. It is easy to adopt, as it does not require any vehicle modifications. Moreover, you do not need to empty your tank if you want to switch from conventional diesel to this extremely climate-friendly diesel as it can be used in the vehicle in any blending ratio all the way up to 100%.—Mika Hyötyläinen, VP, Marketing at Neste Oil Retail
