Neste has welcomed the German government's plan to approve the sales of 100% synthetic fuels at forecourts.
The sales of synthetic fuels, such as e-fuels and renewable diesel (HVO in Germany have been largely limited to fuel blends in which these fuels have represented about 26% maximum.
The sales of unblended 100% renewable diesel has previously only been allowed in specific segments, such as in non-road vehicles and public transportation.
The planned approval by the government would in the near future allow 100% renewable diesel to be sold and used unblended in all segments in Germany.
"We are very pleased that the German government plans to approve synthetic fuels, allowing 100% renewable diesel to be sold at all fuel stations. This means that in the near future, also privately operated vehicle fleets and consumers will be able to use this product and instantly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions," said Peter Zonneveld, vice-president sales Europe and APAC at Neste.
"This is a significant step in the fight against climate change. It is now necessary to legally implement the decision as quickly as possible," Peter Zonneveld continues.”
By using Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, which is made from 100% renewable raw materials, greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) are reduced by as much as 75 to 95% over the lifecycle of the fuel compared to fossil diesel.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is fully compatible with all diesel engines and the existing fuel distribution infrastructure.
Thanks to the Clean Vehicle Directive, Neste has already been selling Neste MY Renewable Diesel to municipalities and public transportation companies, while Neste MY Renewable Diesel has also been available for the use in non-road applications in Germany, such as in agriculture, construction, trains and in the marine sector.
