Neste Green diesel for support vehicles
Neste Oil will launch in the near future Neste Green diesel that is produced using renewable feedstocks. The product can be used in all diesel-fuelled vehicles.
The Finnish round of the FIA World Rally Championship is making
an early start in using this environmentally sustainable fuel.
In this weekendīs event all the diesel cars used by the rally organisation, as well as all rescue vehicles, will run on Neste Green diesel.
This fuel is produced using biodiesel component NExBTL that is made of renewable feedstocks. The NExBTL technology, a method developed by Neste Oil, is used in manufacturing a product equivalent to the best known diesel fuels from vegetable oils and animal fats. The Neste Green diesel used in Neste Oil Rally Finland contains 25 % of biodiesel component NExBTL.
"Naturally we wish to be forerunners in this development," explained Jarmo Mahonen, the Managing Director of AKK Sports Ltd, the organiser of Rally Finland. "It is great that we get to use our title sponsorīs Neste Green diesel in Neste Oil Rally Finland. The motorsport world strives to be in the frontline of the technical development, of which environmental issues are an essential part."
