Dutch opt for fossil-fuel travel

For a fortnight in the Dutch province of Friesland next month citizens will ‘travel fossil-fuel-free’.

It is part of the Elfwegentocht event, which will see the ‘Frisian people hold the largest fossil-fuel-free parade ever’ – with the festival of electric vehicles also including an electric boatparade.

Local fuel stations in Friesland also offer Blauwe Diesel, which is 100% renewable diesel, comes from Neste MY and slashes emissions by 90%. The HVO – Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil, classified as Advanced Biofuel – is made using sustainable and renewable raw materials at Neste’s Rotterdam refinery.


“We are delighted to be part of the Fossil-Free Friesland movement, and to support the Elfwegentocht event in reaching its fossil-free targets. With our local distributor Future Fuels Wholesale, we are introducing Blauwe Diesel powered by Neste MY in the Dutch market,” said Peter Zonneveld, Vice President of Sales at Neste.

Elfwegentocht takes place from 1 to 14 July 2018
