Neste and Hightowers Petroleum, a wholesale fuel supplier serving customers in the Midwest region in the U.S., have formed a strategic partnership to offer Neste MY Renewable Diesel – the first Top Tier certified renewable diesel fuel certified for its high quality.
This partnership enables Hightowers to supply Neste MY Renewable Diesel to customers across the Midwest region, where the company sees strong demand for lower-emission fuels, especially from the automobile industry.
Many vehicle manufacturers have committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from “first fills” – i.e. resulting from the use of the fuel to fill new vehicles when leaving the production line to ensure they meet technical, storage and environmental requirements between the assembly lines and the delivery to customers.
With the use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel, GHG emissions can be effectively reduced by up to 75% compared with fossil diesel over its life cycle, and as a drop-in solution, it is compatible with all diesel engines, making it an ideal choice for first fill and testing.
Driving Green Innovation and High Performance
In addition to curbing greenhouse gas emissions, renewable diesel offers various advantages and demonstrates quality performance.
Its absence of sulfur, oxygen, and aromatic compounds results in cleaner combustion, potentially reducing the maintenance needs of vehicles powered by Neste MY Renewable Diesel.
Furthermore, this renewable diesel exhibits exceptional cold weather performance, making it suitable for temperatures as low as -4°F.
Its elevated cetane number contributes to improved start-up and throttle response, which proves especially beneficial for businesses with diverse usage patterns across different seasons.
Neste's Global Leadership in Renewable Energy
Over the last decade, Neste has collaborated with fuel distributors, establishing itself as a key player in America's leading renewable diesel distribution and marketing network.
Neste took an early initiative by supplying renewable diesel to California and Oregon and is currently undergoing rapid expansion in production, fueling station infrastructure, and distribution capabilities to meet the increasing demand throughout the U.S.
Notably, Neste stands out as the sole global provider of renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuel, and renewable feedstock for polymers and chemicals, boasting a production footprint on three continents.
