Neste, a producer of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel, announced a new partnership with Coleman Oil Company, a provider of fuels, biofuels, lubricants, and related products, to expand the availability of Neste MY Renewable Diesel in the state of Washington in the U.S.

The partnership will enable cities and businesses in Washington to access Neste MY Renewable Diesel more easily.

Why Renewable Diesel in the Pacific Northwest? 

This low-carbon fuel can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 75% over the fuel’s lifecycle compared with fossil diesel. The fuel is made from 100% renewable raw materials, such as waste fats and oils, and can be used in existing diesel engines without any modifications.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel will be available at key locations in Coleman Oil’s network of commercial fueling stations and other distribution channels, such as bulk fuel delivery and retail stations across Washington.

The fuel will cater to the needs of the state’s fleets looking for ways to reduce their environmental impact and comply with the state’s Clean Fuel Standard, which aims to lower the carbon intensity of transportation fuels by 20% by 2035, including:

  • Construction.
  • Agriculture.
  • Heavy-duty trucking industries.
  • Municipalities.

“Washington State has demonstrated its commitment to sustainability by becoming the latest state to implement a Clean Fuel Standard. Today, Neste is supporting the state’s goal of reducing emissions from the transportation sector by providing renewable diesel to the companies and cities in Washington,” said Carrie Song, Vice President of Renewable Road Transportation, Americas at Neste. “We are excited to partner with Coleman Oil; their massive distribution network is crucial for making renewable diesel available across the state.”

Neste MY Renewable Diesel offers several benefits over fossil diesel, such as improved performance, lower maintenance costs, and longer storage life. The fuel also performs well in extremely cold conditions (down to -4°F/-20°C), making it an ideal choice for businesses that operate in Washington, where the average daytime temperatures can range from the upper 30s to around 0°F (3° to -17°C) in winter.

“We are extremely excited to partner with Neste. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a best-in-class product that will be at the center of our renewables strategy,” said Ian Coleman, President of Coleman Oil Company.
