Deutsche Bahn is expanding its use of renewable diesel significantly by purchasing around 13,300 tons of renewable diesel produced by Neste.
Switching from fossil diesel to Neste MY Renewable Diesel will enable Deutsche Bahn to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the operation of their diesel-powered locomotives and railcars by up to 90 %.
In total, the purchased amount will save Deutsche Bahn around 46,000 tons of greenhouse gas emissions (CO2e) compared to the use of fossil diesel.
eutsche Bahn has already approved HVO-type 100% renewable diesel for the use in around 1,000 of its vehicles, and its subsidiary DB Cargo AG in its entire fleet of 800 vehicles.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a drop-in fuel, suitable for use in diesel-powered vehicles without any modifications to their engines.
“We are happy that Deutsche Bahn chose Neste MY Renewable Diesel as a solution on their journey of becoming climate neutral. Companies can reduce their climate emissions in an instant by just switching to Neste MY Renewable Diesel,” said Peter Zonneveld, vice president, Europe and APAC from Renewable Road Transportation business unit at Neste. “With our renewables production capacity increasing to 5.5 million tons by the end of 2023 and further to 6.8 million tons by the end of 2026, we are well-equipped to help our customers around the world to make the switch to more sustainable solutions.”
