Neste and New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG), the principal subsidiary of New Jersey Resources, are looking to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with Neste MY Renewable Diesel™.

Expanding on its sustainability leadership, NJNG announced it is switching its medium-duty trucks and associated equipment to renewable diesel to help reduce GHG emissions. NJNG is now the first natural gas utility on the East Coast to use this cleaner fuel for its fleet operations.

“We are excited to help New Jersey Natural Gas reduce their fleet emissions with renewable diesel. Innovative companies, like NJNG, are paving the way towards a larger-scale transition to renewables and a cleaner energy future,” said Carrie Song, Senior Vice President, Commercial, Renewable Products at Neste. “This partnership demonstrates the increasing demand for lower-emission fuels across the entire nation. We look forward to helping other businesses in the state effectively reduce greenhouse gas emissions.”

When using renewable diesel – made from sustainably sourced, 100% renewable raw materials – GHG emissions can be reduced over the fuel’s life cycle compared to fossil diesel. Additionally, since Neste’s renewable diesel is compatible with all diesel engines, NJNG is able to seamlessly transition to this fuel without the need for new infrastructure or investment into fleet modifications.

Approximately 70 medium-duty trucks in NJNG’s fleet now run on renewable diesel. “Innovation and new technologies will be critical to reduce emissions economywide and reach New Jersey’s climate goals. New Jersey Natural Gas’ use of renewable diesel to help reduce our fleet emissions is the next step toward this goal,” said Patrick Migliaccio, Senior Vice President and COO of New Jersey Natural Gas. “Together with Neste and KW Rastall, our fuel supplier, we are helping lower transportation related emissions in New Jersey.”
