Diesel from waste slashes carbon emissions

Hybrid green car

Neste’s low carbon renewable diesel made from waste and residues reduced carbon emissions by 6.7 million tons last year.

The company’s MY Renewable Diesel refined from renewable raw materials was equivalent to the permanent removal of 2.4 million passenger cars from the roads for one full year.

“With Neste MY Renewable Diesel, any environmentally-conscious driver of a diesel-powered vehicle can instantly reduce the carbon footprint of his or her transportation. The use of this fuel does not require any vehicle-related investments or modifications. It is suitable for all diesel-powered passenger cars, as well as for use in heavy transport, such as in buses, garbage trucks, emergency vehicles, and long-haul trucks, among others,” explains Kaisa Hietala, Executive Vice President, Renewable Products at Neste.

“More and more companies have taken the steps forward to reduce their carbon footprint with our renewable fuels. Google gBuses and UPS delivery trucks, for example, already run on our renewable diesel,” Hietala adds.
