Neste partners with 2 companies to sell its renewable diesel in Germany


Neste Corp. announced Oct. 6 that it 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 and contribute to reducing greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions in the transport sector.



The two companies will distribute and sell Neste MY Renewable Diesel in Germany, while Neste will ensure sufficient volumes of the fuel.



Currently, the sale of renewable fuels is regulated by German legislation.



It is already possible to use 100 percent renewable diesel in public transport in the cities for waste collection, post and parcel-delivery services and off-road applications such as trains, agriculture or machinery. Legislation that would allow all potential users to take advantage of 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,” said Jörg Hübeler, Neste’s head of market development in Europe Asia Pacific. “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.”



EDi’s mission is to reliably supply its customers with more sustainable fuels, which now also includes Neste MY Renewable Diesel.



“Neste is fully committed to supporting decarbonization in Germany,” said Roland Weissert, managing director of EDi Energie-Direkt Hohenlohe. “For us at EDi, the cooperation with Neste in Germany is therefore a perfect fit.”



For Tool-Fuel Services, Neste will act as a supplier and thus help to secure the demand for renewable diesel (also known as HVO100, or 100 percent hydrotreated vegetable oil) in Germany.



“We are very proud about the trust placed in us by Neste,” said Alexander Stöhr, managing director at Tool-Fuel Services. “The signed cooperation agreement in Germany is a potential breakthrough in reducing emissions with a solution available already today.”


With Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, GHG emissions can be reduced by up to 90 percent over the fuel’s lifecycle compared with fossil diesel. Switching to renewable diesel from Neste thus enables its users to significantly reduce their transport-related GHG emissions. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is produced from 100 percent renewable raw materials.



Renewable diesel is fully compatible with all diesel engines, not requiring any modifications to the existing vehicles or fuel-distribution infrastructures.



EDi is one of the leading medium-sized energy traders in Baden-Württemberg. The company is part of an extensive fueling-station network with its own stations and is helping to supply customers in Germany with fuels on time and responsibly. As a family business, EDi looks back on a company history of more than 90 years. Founded as R. Weissert Kohlehandel in 1928, the path led them through several stations and generations to today’s energy trader EDi.



Tool-Fuel is an innovative company that specializes in the sale of high-quality synthetic diesel fuels, heating oils and providing advice on all aspects of using these fuels. The core competencies of Tool-Fuel Services GmbH are the distribution of high-quality diesel predominantly produced from residual and waste materials, and consulting on other paraffinic diesel fuels.
