In the Lone Star State, Houston-headquartered Neste U.S., Inc. is reporting the sale of its 1 billionth gallon of Neste MY Renewable Diesel sold in North America, effectively helping reduce more than 7 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere. This is the equivalent of removing 1.6 million passenger vehicles from the road for one year, according to Neste.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a low-carbon diesel produced from 100 pct renewable and sustainable raw materials, such as waste animal and fish fat, vegetable oils and used cooking oil. It emits up to 80 percent less carbon when compared to petroleum diesel.

Neste
Date: 2018-02-26
According to a Helsinki-headquartered Neste release, replacing fossil fuels with Neste's renewable fuels reduced global climate emissions altogether by 8.3 million metric tons or 8.3 billion KG in 2017 -- equivalent to removing 3 million passenger cars from the roads for a full year.

The emission reduction is calculated by comparing the life cycle greenhouse gas emissions of the renewable fuels that Neste produces in a year to the life cycle emissions of the equivalent amount of conventional diesel. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is refined from waste and residue raw materials, such as meat processing wastes, used cooking oils, and residues from vegetable oil processing, Neste MY Renewable Diesel provides up to 80 pct reduction in carbon emissions as well as improving local air quality by reducing exhaust emissions, nitrogen oxides, particulates, and carbon monoxide, according to the Neste release.
