In order to contribute to reducing greenhouse gas emission in the transport sector, Neste is partnering with EDi Energie-Direkt Hohenlohe GmbH and TOOL-FUEL Services GmbH to jointly enable the supply of Neste MY Renewable Diesel in Germany. Both companies will distribute and sell Neste MY Renewable Diesel in Germany. However, Neste will be responsible for ensuring sufficient volumes of the fuel.
German legislation currently regulates the sale of renewable fuels. Entirely renewable diesel products, such as Neste MY Renewable Diesel are already possible to use in public transport in the cities, for waste collection for post and delivery services and for applications off the road, such as trains, agriculture or machinery. The legislation, which would allow all potential users to benefit from the climate benefits of renewable diesel, is currently under political discussion in Germany.
“The cooperation agreements mark an important step in increasing the potential for decarbonization of the German market,” says Jörg Hübeler, head of market development Europe & APAC at Neste. “This is truly a milestone for us at Neste as well as for the German market – with this collaboration we can supply Neste MY Renewable Diesel to the whole country.”
“Neste is fully committed to supporting decarbonization in Germany. For us at EDi, the cooperation with Neste in Germany is therefore a perfect fit,” says Roland Weissert, Managing Director EDi Energie-Direkt Hohenlohe. EDi is commited to reliably supply its customers with more sustainable fuels, which now also includes Neste MY Renewable Diesel.
For TOOL-FUEL Services, Neste will act as a supplier and thus help to secure the demand for renewable diesel in Germany.
“We are very proud about the trust placed in us by Neste. The signed cooperation agreement in Germany is a potential breakthrough in reducing emissions with a solution available already today,” says Alexander Stöhr, Managing Director at TOOL-FUEL Services.
Using Neste MY Renewable Diesel, the greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced by up to 90% when emissions over the fuel’s life cycle are compared with fossil diesel. Making the swit to renewable diesel from Neste enables its users to significantly reduce their transport-related greenhouse gas emissions.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is produced from 100% renewable raw materials and is fully compatible with all diesel engines, without requiring any modifications to the existing vehicles or fuel distribution infrastructures.
