Neste Corporation, Press Release, 28 August 2019 at 5 pm. (EET)
Fleet drivers in Northern and Central California can now fuel up at multiple commercial fueling sites with high-performance, low-carbon Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, thanks to the recent opening of three new locations. The new cardlock stations join the first location in San Leandro, California, which opened in March 2019.
Made by the world’s largest producer of renewable diesel fuel, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials that cut greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80%*, compared to fossil diesel.
To date, the four cardlock locations offering Neste MY Renewable Diesel have helped customers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by at least 79,000 metric tons. This figure equals the removal of over 16,000 passenger cars from the roads for a full year.
“We are happy to announce these new locations for our high-quality and low-carbon Neste MY Renewable Diesel. It is a drop-in fuel, meaning no engine or infrastructure modifications are needed to make the switch. In addition, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is competitively priced with fossil diesel, so fleets don’t have to sacrifice cost for sustainability,” tells Jeremy Baines, Vice President of Sales for Neste U.S. Inc.
“We are proud of the progress made at our new cardlock locations and look forward to making Neste MY Renewable Diesel more accessible throughout California and across the globe,” Baines continues.
“For customers who do not have the ability for onsite fueling, cardlocks are a necessity, says Tom Van De Pol, General Manager of Van De Pol, an authorized distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel which operates two of the cardlocks. “Having Neste MY Renewable Diesel available at a cardlock gives access to commercial and public fleets who understand the performance and emissions benefits of using a 100 percent renewable fuel. Increased access to Neste MY Renewable Diesel benefits the entire community.”
The Neste-branded cardlock locations, designed to accommodate fleet vehicles including 18-wheel trucks, are located here:
San Leandro, Calif. (Western States Oil, 2709 Teagarden Street)
San Jose, Calif. (Western States Oil, 1790 S. 10th Street)
Keyes, Calif. (Van De Pol, 5675 7th Street)
Ripon, Calif. (Van De Pol, 801 S. Frontage Road)
“We’re excited to offer Neste MY Renewable Diesel at our stations for those fleet drivers who couldn’t previous access the high-performance fuel and take advantage of its benefits,” said Steve Lopes, President and CEO of Western States Oil, an authorized distributor of Neste MY Renewable Diesel that operates the other cardlock locations. “Our customers are raving about the maintenance improvements to their fleets and happy to lower their carbon footprint at the same time.”
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is available to public and private fleets in California through authorized distributors. For more information on Neste MY, and to learn how your fleet can make the switch, visit NesteMY.com or find a distributor.
