Californian transportation company Ecology lowers its carbon footprint with clean-burning Neste MY Renewable Diesel
Ecology, a transportation and logistics company in California, has switched its fleet of more than 600 trucks to run on Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ and is reporting cleaner fuel filters, fewer maintenance problems and reductions in tailpipe emissions.
“Neste MY Renewable Diesel is excellent for use in our on-road and off-road diesel applications for light, medium and heavy use,” said Greg Evans, fleet manager, Ecology. “The product is easy to use, it’s very flexible, best of all, there’s no additional cost to receive the product as we don’t have to change our infrastructure,” he said.
Transportation with clean-burning fuel
Switching 600 trucks, which drive on average 25,000 miles per year at approximately 2.5 mpg (according to the Federal Highway Administration and American Public Transit Association’s Public Transport Fact Book) means that Ecology’s Greenhouse Gas emission reductions are equivalent to taking 9,600 cars off the road and providing the same environmental benefit as 53,000 acres of forest.
“The reduction of tailpipe emissions and the environmental improvements as a result are also very important to Ecology. That helps us meet the needs of our customers who require us to transport their goods with clean-burning fuel,” Evans said.
