Neste has started a new partnership with PetroCard, a premier commercial fleet fuel management solutions provider, to grow the accessibility of Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ in the Pacific north-west of the US.
This partnership expands the availability of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to key locations in PetroCard’s network of commercial fuel stations in Oregon and offers commercial, state, and municipal fleet customers access to a lower-carbon alternative to fossil diesel.
“Partnering with PetroCard enables us to meet the growing demand for sustainable, lower-emission solutions from commercial and government entities in the region,” said Carrie Song, vice-president, renewable road transport Americas at Neste.
“There is no time to wait in the fight against climate change, and that is why we are working hard to bring more renewable diesel to the market to help cut greenhouse gas emissions from the transportation sector immediately.”
Fossil diesel is a huge contributor to the GHG emissions in the US In 2021, about 46.82 billion gallons of diesel fuel were consumed in the US transportation sector, resulting in the emission of 472 million metric tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).
In contrast, the use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel, made from sustainably-sourced, 100% renewable raw materials, results in up to 75% reduced GHG emissions over its life cycle compared to fossil diesel and when used in its neat form.
Since Neste MY Renewable Diesel has a similar chemical composition to fossil diesel, it can be used as a drop-in solution today without investments into new vehicle fleets, modifications to the engines or the fuel distribution infrastructure.
This enables municipalities and businesses to achieve their sustainability goals and create a healthier planet for both current and future generations.
“Our commitment to provide our customers access to innovative fuel solutions that create value and efficiency unequivocally includes offering products and solutions that contribute to a better, more sustainable tomorrow,” said Laura Yellig, President and CEO of PetroCard.
“The expanded access to Neste MY Renewable Diesel reinforces that commitment to our customers.”
