UFF to use Neste MY Renewable Diesel in its logistics chain
Tuesday, Aug 15, 2017


Neste MY Renewable Diesel, produced entirely from waste and residues, will reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced in UFF's logistics chain. UFF is an organization that recycles clothing for non-profit purposes, and the organization's logistics chain covers the whole of Finland. In collecting clothes for recycling and reuse, UFF clocks up about 800,000-900,000 kilometers annually with its own vehicles.

"In addition to supporting sustainable development, reducing the effects of climate change is also a cornerstone of our organization's work," says UFF's CEO Virve Kivi. "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 percent. Up until now no similar solution has been available at all, so we are very excited about this partnership," Kivi adds.

"We are delighted that UFF has selected Neste MY Renewable Diesel as the fuel for its logistics chain," says Sam Holmberg, Vice President responsible for Neste's Marketing and Services business area in Finland. Neste MY Renewable Diesel can be used without having to make any modifications to vehicles. "This will enable UFF to gain its benefits straight away."

According to Virve Kivi, "we believe that all responsible individuals and companies who donate clothes to UFF appreciate that our logistics chain also works ecologically. Using Neste MY Renewable Diesel will further reinforce the positive climate effects of recycling garments."

Neste MY Renewable Diesel can be used in all diesel vehicles

Neste MY Renewable Diesel can be used in all diesel vehicles, and it is completely compatible with all current diesel grades. It can be added to the fuel tank even if there is some traditional fossil diesel still in the tank. In terms of all of its properties, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is better than or at least as good as the world's leading traditional fossil diesels, and it is much more environmentally sound. Its leading properties ensure cleaner combustion and reduce engine noise and local emissions.

Neste's proprietary NEXBTL technology can be used for producing premium-quality renewable diesel and other renewable products from almost any waste fat or vegetable oil. The raw material base that Neste uses to produce its renewable diesel includes more than 10 raw materials. The company is engaged in continuous development to further expand the raw material base.
