Neste has partnered with Coleman Oil Company, a leading provider of fuels, biofuels, lubricants, and related products, to enable cities and businesses to have easier access to Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ in the state of Washington in the U.S.
This partnership expands the availability of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to key locations in Coleman Oil’s network of commercial fueling stations and other distribution channels, such as bulk fuel delivery and retail stations across Washington and offers this lower-emission fuel to the state’s construction, agriculture, heavy duty trucking industries, and municipalities. The partnership is expected to help the state reduce reliance on fossil diesel and make the transportation sector more sustainable.
“Washington State has demonstrated its commitment to sustainability by becoming the latest state to implement a Clean Fuel Standard. Today, Neste is supporting the state’s goal of reducing emissions from the transportation sector by providing renewable diesel to the companies and cities in Washington,” says Carrie Song, Vice President, Renewable Road Transportation, Americas at Neste. “We are excited to partner with Coleman Oil; their massive distribution network is crucial for us in making renewable diesel available across the state.”
“We are extremely excited to partner with Neste. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a best-in-class product that will be at the center of our renewables strategy,” says Ian Coleman, President of Coleman Oil Company.
Made from sustainably sourced, 100% renewable raw materials, Neste MY Renewable Diesel can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 75%* over the fuel’s life cycle compared with fossil diesel. In addition to reducing GHG emissions, renewable diesel delivers strong performance. Because it does not contain sulfur, oxygen or aromatic compounds, it combusts cleaner. Additionally, Neste MY Renewable Diesel performs well in extreme cold conditions (down to -4°F/-20°C) and can be stored over long periods of time without deterioration, making it an ideal choice for businesses that operate in Washington, where the average daytime temperatures can range from the upper 30s to around 0°F (3° to -17°C) in winter.
Neste in the Americas
Over the past decade, Neste has partnered with fuel distributors to create America’s leading renewable diesel distribution and marketing network. Neste was one of the first companies to supply renewable diesel into California and Oregon after the two states adopted their clean fuel programs, and today is proudly expanding the footprint to Washington, creating a renewable diesel fueling corridor along the US West Coast.
Today, Neste has an annual production capacity of 1.14 billion gallons (3.3 million tons) of renewable products globally. The production capacity will further increase to 1.9 billion gallons (5.5 million tons) in early 2024 thanks to the ramp-up of production at Neste’s expanded refinery in Singapore and the company’s joint operation with Marathon in Martinez, CA, which also has made Neste the only global provider of renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuel, and renewable feedstock for polymers and chemicals with a production footprint on three continents.
*) The GHG emission reduction percentage varies depending on the region-specific legislation that provides the methodology for the calculations (e.g. U.S. California LCFS for the U.S.), and the raw material mix used to manufacture the product for each market.
