Fire trucks switch to renewable fuel

(USA)

A fire department in California is switching its fleet to a renewable fuel made from waste and residues.

The Pasadena Fire Department has begun shifting to Neste MY Renewable Diesel and its Chief, Bertral Washington, says “it has been a huge step forward for the health and safety of our firefighters and community.”

He added: “We have received very positive feedback from personnel assigned to the apparatus. Firefighters and engineers have reported a reduction in vapors they are exposed to while fueling the trucks.”

Innovators Magazine regularly features Neste, headquartered in Finland, as its fuel finds its way into all modes of transport, including planes, boats and tractors. It is an exemplar of innovation, and works creatively to demonstrate to people that waste is a valuable resource. Neste’s Christmas campaign of collecting ham waste from households across Finland to make renewable diesel is a great example of this.
