Renewable diesel producer Neste has opened its first cardlock in San Leandro, California that will offer the company’s MY Renewable Diesel.
The milestone marks the first time that vehicles can fuel up with Neste’s renewable diesel, made from sustainable biomass, directly at a station. Cardlocks are unstaffed fuelling stations designed to accommodate fleet vehicles, such as large trucks.
“Since launching in California in 2017, we’ve had a lot of positive feedback from drivers and fleet managers using Neste MY Renewable Diesel,” said Jeremy Baines, vice-president of sales at Neste. “And those who haven’t tried it yet keep asking where they can get it. We’re proud to offer Neste MY Renewable Diesel at these cardlock locations to further expand its accessibility and lead the renewable fuel revolution.”
The company plans to open three other sites across California, with each able to supply its renewable, low-carbon diesel fuel, produced from 100% renewable and sustainable biomass. According to Neste, the fuel reduces greenhouse gases by up to 80% compared to petroleum diesel.
Baines added: “Demand for cleaner fuels is on the rise globally, and California is a leader in the movement toward an emission-free future. Neste MY Renewable Diesel helps meet environmental needs without compromising performance.”
The renewable fuel is a direct replacement for petroleum diesel and does not require blending. It is compatible with all diesel engines, with no modifications required.
