(FINLAND)

A company which last year recycled ’14 million kilos of clothes’ is set to become an exemplar of the circular economy by powering its trucks with renewable diesel.

Finnish non-profit UFF will use Neste MY Renewable Diesel – produced from waste and residues – to fuel its vehicles, which travel between 800,000 to 900,000 kilometers across the country every year.

“In addition to supporting sustainable development, reducing the effects of climate change is also a cornerstone of our organization’s work. It is very natural for us to start using Neste MY Renewable Diesel, which is a fuel innovation that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 90%. Up until now no similar solution has been available at all, so we are very excited about this partnership,” said Virve Kivi, UFF’s CEO.

And the move was welcomed by Sam Holmberg, Vice President responsible for Neste‘s Marketing and Services business area in Finland.

“We are delighted that UFF has selected Neste MY Renewable Diesel as the fuel for its logistics chain,” he said.
