Neste has joined the eFuel Alliance, an interest group dedicated to the industrial production of synthetic fuels from renewable sources.
The eFuel Alliance is based in Berlin and Brussels and brings together companies and organisations that share the goal of establishing and promoting power - and bio-based synthetic fuels to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from transport.
Throughout the world, more than 1.3 billion vehicles are currently powered by conventional internal combustion engines.
In addition, there are around 22,000 aircrafts for which there are no cost-effective technical alternatives in sight.
Low-carbon fuels are the only sustainable solution to reduce the greenhouse gas emissions from existing combustion engines around the world.
“Synthetic eFuels and sustainable biofuels are needed to reduce GHG emissions from transport and to facilitate the EU in reaching its 2050 targets. With Neste as a new member, the alliance gains an innovative thought leader and a strong global partner in the field of renewable fuels. Neste joining us also shows that the eFuel Alliance is gaining momentum on European level which is a major goal in our efforts to change European regulation,” said Ralf Diemer, managing director of the eFuel Alliance.
Carl Nyberg, executive vice president for Neste’s renewable road transportation business unit and board member of the eFuel Alliance, added: “We are happy to be part of the alliance, working together to promote renewable fuel solutions for both the short and long term. All solutions are needed in the fight against the climate crisis.”
