Neste Renewable Diesel is now being used by the County of Sacramento, California.
In doing so, the County of Sacramento will reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its fleet by up to 80%. The County estimates that it will reduce greenhouses gases by approximately 8000 tpy.
"Many government agencies and private corporations worldwide are now looking for ways to reduce emissions and carbon footprint. In the United States the State of California is leading the way. Neste Renewable Diesel is a solution to reduce both greenhouse gas emissions and tailpipe emissions. Switching to Neste Renewable Diesel does not require any additional investments on infrastructure or engine modifications. Thus, fleets can switch to renewable diesel overnight", said Kaisa Hietala, Executive Vice President, Renewable Products, Neste Corp.
"It's our privilege to help the California's state capitol county, Sacramento, become more sustainable. We want to give public and private fleets, as well as consumers, options to make responsible choices", continued Hietala.
"Sacramento County is proud to be recognised among the leading and most sustainable public fleets in the country. Migrating to Neste Renewable Diesel provides us immediate huge gains in carbon emissions reduction that we could not otherwise achieve without significantly increased investments in alternative fueled vehicles and infrastructure", said Keith Leech, Chief, Fleet Division & Parking, Sacramento County.
