Neste Corporation, Press Release, 10 October 2019 at 11 a.m. (EET)
Neste will introduce Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, produced from 100% renewable raw materials, in Estonia during October 2019. During the initial phase, private car owners and heavy-duty vehicle drivers can refuel with renewable diesel at one station in Tallinn, at Kadaka tee 60, Tallinn. With the expansion, Neste MY Renewable Diesel will be available in all Baltic countries.
“It is great to be able to offer this renewable fuel developed in Finland, now for drivers living in or visiting Estonia. The expansion of Neste MY Renewable Diesel use is a key part of our strategy, and it’s been good to see how well Finns have accepted this high-quality product. In Finland, one fifth of all diesel car drivers already choose it at stations where it is available,” says Panu Kopra, Executive Vice President of Neste’s Marketing & Services business unit.
With fuel made from entirely renewable raw materials, drivers can reduce their carbon footprint by as much as 90% compared to fossil diesel. Using Neste MY Renewable Diesel is easy, because refueling with it does not require any changes to existing engines or vehicles.
In 2018, greenhouse gas emissions were significantly reduced with renewable fuels
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is available not only in Finland and Estonia, but also in Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden, as well as in California and Oregon in the United States. This week, it was also introduced in the Netherlands.
“We want to offer climate-conscious consumers and corporate customers a high-quality product and the possibility of using fully renewable fuels,” says Dennis Antamo, Head of Neste Estonia.
“The product will be first available at one station in Tallinn, and we are keen to see how popular it will become. We will listen carefully to our customers’ feedback and wishes to see how Estonian drivers welcome the new product,” Antamo continues.
In 2018, renewable products refined by Neste helped reduce greenhouse gas emissions globally by 7.9 million tonnes. The amount is the equivalent of 3 million passenger cars being taken from the road traffic for one year.
Neste has 62 stations in Estonia, 72 in Latvia and 74 in Lithuania. Neste is the leading operator of automatic stations in Estonia.
