Neste has welcomed the allowance of unrestricted sales of paraffinic diesel fuels according to the DIN EN 15940 fuel standard in Germany. The sales of unblended, 100% renewable diesel (also known as HVO100) has previously only been allowed in specific segments, such as in non-road vehicles and public transportation.

The approval that has now come into force allows for 100% renewable diesel to be sold and used in all segments in Germany. With this approval, Germany is following other EU countries such as Belgium, the Netherlands, Finland and Sweden in which the sale of 100% renewable diesel at public fuelling stations has long been permitted.

"The approval for the sale of 100% renewable diesel at public fuelling stations in Germany provides essential regulatory clarity for fuel manufacturers and enables fuel sellers to finally make this lower-emission fuel available to all. This is a milestone on the way towards the urgently needed defossilisation of the transport sector, which requires the use of all available solutions," said Jörg Hübeler, from Neste’s Renewable Products Business Development team. "Companies and other organisations with private vehicle fleets and private consumers in Germany can now finally use 100% renewable diesel and immediately and significantly reduce the greenhouse gas emissions of their diesel vehicles," said Hübeler.
