Select stations in Finland to sell 100 percent renewable diesel

By Ron Kotrba | September 08, 2016

Neste announced plans to begin selling 100 percent renewable diesel at select stations in Finland come January. The company says the product launch is one way it plans to participate in the centennial celebration of Finland’s independence from Russia in 1917.

“We will now be the first in Finland to launch diesel produced entirely from renewable raw materials, reducing greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90 percent compared to conventional diesel,” said Mika Hyötyläinen, vice president of marketing at Neste Oil Retail.

Neste renewable diesel is produced through the company’s proprietary NExBTL process.
