Neste MY Renewable Diesel, produced entirely from waste and residues, will reduce the amount of greenhouse gas emissions produced in UFF's logistics chain. UFF recycles clothing for non-profit purposes, and it clocks up approximately 800 000 – 900 000 km annually with its own vehicles.
Neste MY Renewable Diesel can be used in all diesel vehicles, and it is compatible with all current diesel grades. It can be added to the fuel tank even if there is some traditional fossil diesel still in the tank. In terms of its properties, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is as the world's leading traditional fossil diesels, and it is much more environmentally sound. Its leading properties ensure cleaner combustion and reduce engine noise and local emissions.
"In addition to supporting sustainable development, reducing the effects of climate change is also a cornerstone of our organisation's work," commented UFF's CEO, Virve Kivi. "It is very natural for us to start using Neste MY Renewable Diesel, which is a fuel innovation that can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 90%. Up until now no similar solution has been available at all, so we are very excited about this partnership," Kivi added.
"We are delighted that UFF has selected Neste MY Renewable Diesel as the fuel for its logistics chain," says Sam Holmberg, Vice President responsible for Neste's Marketing and Services business area in Finland. Neste MY Renewable Diesel can be used without having to make any modifications to vehicles. "This will enable UFF to gain its benefits straight away."
According to Kivi, "we believe that all responsible individuals and companies who donate clothes to UFF appreciate that our logistics chain also works ecologically. Using Neste MY Renewable Diesel will further reinforce the positive climate effects of recycling garments."
