Neste, Q8 collaborate to make renewable diesel available in Danish market
Thanks to a strategic cooperation between Q8 and Neste Corp., operators in the heavy-transport sector can buy Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ at nine Q8 stations in Denmark starting April 17.
Many Danish companies are in the process of converting their transport operations to more sustainable fuels, but a large part of the Danish business-to-business fleet is still powered by fossil diesel.
A new collaboration between Q8 Denmark and Neste, the world’s largest producer of renewable diesel, will help Danish transport companies to significantly reduce greenhouse-gas emissions of their existing fleet by switching fossil diesel to renewable diesel, also known as “HVO100.”
Initially, Neste’s renewable diesel will be made available to heavy transport at nine stations on April 17.
“We are facing a major restructuring of the transport sector in the coming years, and we are experiencing increasing demand from our business customers in particular for products that can contribute to reducing the climate footprint,” said Helle Dahlgren Skov, retail director at Q8. “Biofuels will be crucial in achieving the necessary reductions in the coming years, not least for heavy transport. Therefore, the partnership with Neste is central to our general ambition to minimize the climate footprint both for ourselves and our customers.”
Christian Pettersson, head of branded sales in Neste’s renewable road transportation business unit, added, “We are very excited to expand our Neste MY Renewable Diesel offering in Europe, this time in Denmark in collaboration with Q8. We firmly believe that all solutions are needed to reduce transportation-related emissions and support the sector’s contribution to the EU-level target of reaching carbon neutrality by 2050. Neste MY Renewable Diesel use does not require any modifications to existing engines, vehicles or fuel distribution infrastructure. By fueling Neste-produced renewable diesel, greenhouse-gas (CO2e) emissions can be reduced by up to 90 percent over the lifecycle of the fuel when compared to fossil diesel. We are committed to supporting our customers to reduce greenhouse-gas emissions by at least 20 million tons annually by 2030.”
The goal of the collaboration between Q8 and Neste is to enable the heavy-transport sector throughout Denmark to reduce emissions.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is made available at stations on routes with very heavy transport around Denmark.
