USA: Clean Fuel Neste to Offer Renewable Diesel at its Maiden Commercial Fueling Site
Neste’s first site will be located in California and will offer ‘Neste My Renewable Diesel’, a clean-burning diesel fuel. The company claims that this is the maiden time that vehicles can be fuelled directly at a station with a high performance low-carbon fuel.
California/USA – Renewable diesel fuel is soon to be much more accessible to fleet drivers looking to fuel up in northern and central California, thanks to cardlock locations that will be offering Neste My Renewable Diesel. This is the very first time vehicles can be fueled with this high performance low-carbon fuel directly at a station.
Neste has opened the first Neste-branded cardlock in San Leandro and other three sites will open in cooperation with local distributors this spring. Cardlocks are unstaffed fueling stations designed to accommodate fleet vehicles, including 18-wheel trucks.
Each location will supply Neste My Renewable Diesel, a low-carbon fuel produced from 100 per cent renewable and sustainable raw materials that cuts greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80 per cent compared to petroleum diesel.
In 2018, the San Leandro location served over 16,000 customers, making the switch to the renewable diesel is estimated to help these drivers reduce greenhouse gas emissions by more than 20,000 tonnes every year.
In California, state policymakers are leading the global charge to reduce greenhouse gases through forward thinking standards. The renewable diesel fuel meets and even exceeds California’s rigorous emissions standards while meeting consumer requirements for sustainability, performance and value.
The renewable diesel is a clean-burning diesel fuel that keeps fuel filters, particulate filters and fuel injection systems cleaner and vehicles running efficiently. It is a direct replacement fuel for petroleum diesel that requires no blending and is compatible with all diesel engines without any modification or change in infrastructure.
It is available to public and private fleets in California through authorised distributors.
