Renewable fuel producer Neste has said that Neste MY Renewable Diesel is now available in all Baltic countries, including Estonia, as of October 2019.

During the initial phase, private car owners and heavy-duty vehicle drivers can refuel with renewable diesel at one station in Tallinn, Kadaka tee 60, Tallinn. With this expansion into Estonia, the fuel is now available in all Baltic nations.

“It is great to be able to offer this renewable fuel developed in Finland, now for drivers living in or visiting Estonia,” commented Panu Kopra, executive vice-president of Neste’s marketing and services business unit. “The expansion of Neste MY Renewable Diesel use is a key part of our strategy, and it’s been good to see how well Finns have accepted this high-quality product. In Finland, one fifth of all diesel car drivers already choose it at stations where it is available.”

Using fuel produced from 100% renewable raw materials, drivers can reduce their carbon footprint by up to 90%, compared to fossil diesel. Switching to the biofuel does not require any changes to existing engines or vehicles.

“We want to offer climate-conscious consumers and corporate customers a high-quality product and the possibility of using fully renewable fuels,” added Dennis Antamo, head of Neste Estonia. “The product will be first available at one station in Tallinn, and we are keen to see how popular it will become. We will listen carefully to our customers’ feedback and wishes to see how Estonian drivers welcome the new product.”

Neste has a total of 62 stations in Estonia, where the company is the leading operator of automatic stations, as well as 72 in Latvia and 74 in Lithuania.
