Neste Corp. announced May 11 a new partnership with PetroCard, a premier provider of commercial-fleet fuel-management solutions, to grow the accessibility of Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ in the Pacific Northwest region of the U.S.


This partnership expands the availability of Neste MY Renewable Diesel to key locations in PetroCard’s network of commercial fuel stations in Oregon and offers commercial, state and municipal fleet customers access to a lower-carbon alternative to fossil diesel.


“Partnering with PetroCard enables us to meet the growing demand for sustainable, lower-emission solutions from commercial and government entities in the region,” said Carrie Song, Neste’s vice president of renewable road transport in the Americas. “There is no time to wait in the fight against climate change, and that is why we are working hard to bring more renewable diesel to the market to help cut greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions from the transportation sector immediately.”


In 2021, about 46.82 billion gallons of diesel fuel were consumed in the U.S. transportation sector, resulting in the emission of 472 million metric tons of CO2.



In contrast, the use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel, made from sustainably sourced, 100 percent renewable raw materials, results in up to 75 percent reduced GHG emissions over its lifecycle compared to fossil diesel and when used in its neat form.



Since Neste MY Renewable Diesel has a similar chemical composition to fossil diesel, it can be used as a drop-in solution today without investments into new vehicle fleets, modifications to the engines or the fuel-distribution infrastructure.



This enables municipalities and businesses to achieve their sustainability goals and create a healthier planet for both current and future generations.

“Our commitment to provide our customers access to innovative fuel solutions that create value and efficiency unequivocally includes offering products and solutions that contribute to a better, more sustainable tomorrow,” said Laura Yellig, president and CEO of PetroCard. “The expanded access to Neste MY Renewable Diesel reinforces that commitment to our customers.”


While this drop-in, more sustainable fuel solution will initially be offered at selected locations, Yellig anticipates that the preference and demand for renewable diesel will quickly resonate with fleets.



“PetroCard is positioned to support fleets and businesses across the Northwest with this transition,” Yellig added.

Neste was one of the first companies to introduce renewable diesel into Oregon after the state adopted its Clean Fuels Program and is positioned to supply renewable diesel into Washington and beyond.


In addition to GHG reductions, Neste MY Renewable Diesel also delivers strong performance, especially in cold weather.



“Because it does not contain sulfur, oxygen or aromatic compounds, it combusts cleaner,” Neste stated. “As a result, vehicles that run on Neste MY Renewable Diesel may require less maintenance.”

Neste's current annual production capacity totals 1.14 billion gallons of renewable products globally.



The recent start-up of Neste’s expansion of its Singapore refinery and the joint venture with Marathon in Martinez, California, will increase the total production capacity of renewable products to 1.9 billion gallons by the end of 2023, and make Neste the only global provider of renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuel and renewable feedstock for polymers and chemicals with a production footprint on three continents.
