Sales of Neste MY Renewable Diesel expands to Neste Truck stations for heavy vehicles in Finland


The distribution of Neste MY Renewable Diesel, produced entirely from waste and residues, has expanded to the Neste Truck network for heavy vehicles in Finland. The product enables up to 90% lower greenhouse gas emissions throughout the life cycle of the fuel compared to conventional fossil diesel.

"At the beginning of the year, we launched Neste MY Renewable Diesel at stations for light vehicles, and now we are expanding the product to the Neste Truck network. Our corporate customers who use heavy vehicles have long looked for a fully renewable fuel, and it is great that we are able to meet these expectations," says Panu Kopra, Executive Vice President of Oil Retail at Neste.

"For example, DB Schenker and Lassila & Tikanoja started to use Neste MY Renewable Diesel immediately after it was launched on the Finnish market. Environmentally conscious companies can start using this excellent product without needing to make any modifications to their existing vehicles. It is fully compatible with current diesel grades, and can be added to the fuel tank in any mixing ratio," Kopra continues.

In terms of all of its properties, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is better than or at least as good as the world's leading fossil diesels, and more environmentally sound. Its properties ensure a clean combustion and reduce engine noise and local emissions. In addition, the changing temperatures in Finland have also been taken into account in the product, and motorists do not need to worry about any engine failures, even in extremely cold conditions.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel is available from the following Neste Truck stations in January 2017:

The availability of the product will be expanded in stages to the following Neste Truck stations in February:
