Ecology, a transportation and logistics company in California, has switched its fleet of more than 600 trucks to run on Neste MY Renewable Diesel and is reporting cleaner fuel filters, fewer maintenance problems and reductions in tailpipe emissions.
Ecology is one of the largest trucking and transportation companies in the Western United States, providing services for transportation, heavy haul and oversize loads, and containers to and from the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. Ecology is also a large transporter of bulk waste and recycling materials, moving millions of pounds to disposal or recycling facilities every year.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a low-carbon fuel produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials, primarily wastes and residues. It cuts greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80%, reduces tailpipe emissions, in particular NOx and carbon monoxide, and has no odor. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a drop-in fuel that requires no blending, no engine modification and is compatible with all current infrastructure.
Switching 600 trucks, which drive on average 25,000 miles per year at approximately 2.5 mpg (according to the Federal Highway Administration and American Public Transit Association’s Public Transport Fact Book) means that Ecology’s Greenhouse Gas emission reductions are equivalent to taking 9,600 cars off the road and providing the same environmental benefit as 53,000 acres of forest.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is available to public and private fleets in California through authorized distributors. IPC USA, based in Santa Ana, California, is the exclusive distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to Ecology.
With 2.7 million tons, Neste is responsible for the majority of total renewable diesel production globally. Neste MY Renewable Diesel reduced climate emissions by 8.3 million tonnes of CO2 in 2017.
