Neste, MAN and Altens sign partnership to promote biofuels in France
France is a strong market for biodiesel and FAME, but many OEMs would like to see more renewable diesel or HVO100, on the market.
The objective of this partnership is to promote the common vision of the crucial role that biofuels can play in the sustainability transformation of the transportation of goods and people.
“This partnership with Neste, a world leader in producing renewable diesel, and Altens, a multi-biofuel supplier in France reinforces MAN's multi-biofuel approach," said Jean-Yves Kerbrat, managing director of MAN truck and bus France.
“MAN advocates sustainable biofuels as opposed to fossil fuels because they allow significant reductions in CO2 emissions and are easy to implement solutions in the short term.”
MAN Truck and Bus France as an industrial vehicle manufacturer offering several biofuel solutions (HVO100, B100 and biogas) is convinced that biofuels is a solution that is available.
