Renewable Diesel in Sweden

While on the subject of diesel fuel, it is interesting to note that a Finland-based company, Neste Corporation, is launching its fuel, “Neste MY Renewable Diesel,” in the Swedish transport market, interesting because this is a biodiesel that, according to the company, produces 90% less greenhouse gas emissions than dinosaur-based diesel fuel.

While on the subject of diesel fuel, it is interesting to note that a Finland-based company, Neste Corporation, is launching its fuel, “Neste MY Renewable Diesel,” in the Swedish transport market, interesting because this is a biodiesel that, according to the company, produces 90% less greenhouse gas emissions than dinosaur-based diesel fuel.

The fuel is based on an array of waste and residues from the meat, fish and vegetable oil industry and has the same chemical composition as fossil diesel. Consequently, it can be used as a replacement in vehicles straight away.

Neste produces 2.7 million tons of renewable diesel and has the objective of producing 4 million by 2022.

The company is pitching the fuel with the slogan “Five minutes to fossil free,” with the five minutes presumably referring to the amount of time taken to put the liquid in a tank.

No word on whether the meat-, fish- and/or vegetable-oil based diesel has a delicious, restaurant-like fragrance.
