100% biofuel goes on trial in Finland
The trial will include private individuals and Neste Oil employees and will see a range of different cars used, marking a first for a premium renewable diesel fuel according to the company.
Neste Oil claims that its renewable diesel offers significant advantages compared to conventional biodiesel. The fuel's greenhouse gas emissions over its entire life cycle are said to be 40-80% lower than those of fossil diesel, and its tailpipe emissions are also lower.
'The majority of Neste Oil stations in Finland already offer Neste Green diesel, which contains a minimum of 10% renewable diesel blended with conventional diesel fuel,' said Neste Oil's executive vice president, oil retail, Sakari Toivola. 'We plan to make Neste Green 100 diesel, which is produced form 100% renewable sources, available to motorists as soon as possible.'
