Liebherr will be expanding its use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to include its plant in Kirchdorf.
The company develops and manufactures about 2,500 machines, such as hydraulic excavators, material handling machines and articulated trucks annually.
Neste-produced renewable diesel will be used in testing as well as in all plant traffic.
Liebherr has already been powering its mobile and crawler cranes at its plant in Ehingen with Neste MY Renewable Diesel since September 2021.
“We will be able to save 2.5 million litres of fossil diesel per year by switching to Neste MY Renewable Diesel. That will mean an annual reduction of around 6,500 tons of CO2,” said Ulrich Heusel, production director at Liebherr-Werk Ehingen.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a more sustainable alternative to fossil diesel. By switching to renewable diesel, diesel-powered machines in the existing fleets around the world can start reducing greenhouse gas emissions in an instant.
“We are very proud to work with Liebherr. The fact that they also largely approve Neste MY Renewable Diesel usage in older machinery, makes it easy for the construction industry to reduce their climate emissions significantly in an instant,'' added Carl Nyberg, executive vice president, renewable road transportation at Neste. “We are committed to supporting our customers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20 million tons annually by 2030.”
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is produced from 100% renewable raw materials. Its helps reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 90% when emissions over the fuel's life cycle are compared with fossil diesel. The renewable diesel is a “drop-in” fuel, fully compatible with all diesel engines, not requiring any modifications to the existing vehicles or fuel distribution infrastructures.
