Neste Corporation, Press Release, 22 September 2020 at 9 a.m. (EET)
Neste, the world’s largest producer of renewable diesel and the 3rd most sustainable company in the world*, celebrates reaching the milestone of 100 Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ sales points in the Netherlands. Neste MY Renewable Diesel, produced from 100% renewable raw materials, was launched on the Dutch market in October 2019. With the use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel, customers can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%** compared to fossil diesel over the fuel’s lifecycle.
“We are extremely happy to be reaching this milestone together with our four Dutch distribution partners and all end-customers. Fleet owners and private car owners across the country can now fill up with our high-quality fuel and become fossil free in an instant. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a drop-in solution, meaning that it can be mixed with fossil diesel, and it does not require modifications to existing diesel engines or infrastructure”, says Pieter Zonneveld, Vice President, Sales Europe & APAC, for Neste’s Renewable Road Transportation business unit.
