Renewable diesel just experienced a major expansion in the state of California. Neste, a maker of “green” diesel, just inked a deal with four of California’s largest fuel distributors to bring their product to industrial end-users throughout the state. The full story is on NGT News, but here are the bullets:


  • Houston-based Neste US Inc. has announced exclusive partnerships with four fuel distributors in California
  • These partnerships will provide public and private fleets access to Neste MY Renewable Diesel
  • Partners include IPC (USA) Inc., Ramos Oil Co., Van De Pol Petroleum, and Western States Oil
  • The fuel is a low-carbon drop-in fuel produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials
  • The fuel meets conventional CARB diesel and ASTM D975-12a requirements
  • Neste will bring a consistent supply of renewable diesel along with an exclusive supply arrangement
  • Distributors see this as an opportunity to help clean up the environment in an industry commonly referred to as dirty and polluting


It seems like a win-win for diesel users and the environment.
