Neste welcomes ability to sell 100% renewable diesel in Germany

Neste Corp. welcomed May 29 the allowance of unrestricted sales of paraffinic diesel fuels according to the DIN EN 15940 fuel standard in Germany.


The sales of unblended, 100 percent renewable diesel—also known as 100 percent hydrotreated vegetable oil or HVO100—has previously only been allowed in specific segments such as in nonroad vehicles and public transportation.


The approval that has now come into force allows for 100 percent renewable diesel to be sold and used in all segments in Germany.


With this approval, Germany is following other EU countries such as Belgium, the Netherlands, Finland and Sweden in which the sale of 100 percent renewable diesel at public fueling stations has long been permitted.

“The approval for the sale of 100 percent renewable diesel at public fueling stations in Germany provides essential regulatory clarity for fuel manufacturers and enables fuel sellers to finally make this lower-emission fuel available to all,” said Jörg Hübeler with Neste’s renewable products business-development team.


“This is a milestone on the way towards the urgently needed defossilization of the transport sector, which requires the use of all available solutions,” Hübeler added.


“Companies and other organizations with private vehicle fleets and private consumers in Germany can now finally use 100 percent renewable diesel and immediately and significantly reduce the greenhouse-gas (GHG) emissions of their diesel vehicles,” Hübeler said.

By using Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, which is made from 100 percent renewable raw materials, GHG can be reduced by 75 percent to 95 percent over the lifecycle of the fuel compared to fossil diesel.


Neste MY Renewable Diesel is fully compatible with all diesel engines and the existing fuel-distribution infrastructure.


Neste MY Renewable Diesel has a similar chemical composition to fossil diesel, making it a drop-in replacement for the fossil fuel.


It can be used unblended without the need for any changes in the diesel-powered vehicles or their engines.


The use of 100 percent renewable diesel is widely approved by vehicle and engine manufacturers.
