Neste welcomes unrestricted sales allowance of 100 percent renewable diesel in Germany

Neste welcomes the unrestricted sales allowance of paraffinic diesel fuels according to the DIN EN 15940 fuel standard in Germany. Previously, unblended 100% renewable diesel (also known as “HVO100”) was only allowed in specific segments, such as non-road vehicles and public transportation. The new approval permits the sale and use of 100% renewable diesel in all segments in Germany. With this approval, Germany aligns with other EU countries like Belgium, the Netherlands, Finland, and Sweden, where the sale of 100% renewable diesel at public fueling stations has long been permitted.

“The approval for the sale of 100% renewable diesel at public fueling 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 defossilization of the transport sector, which requires the use of all available solutions,” says Jörg Hübeler, from Neste’s Renewable Products Business Development team. “Companies and other organizations 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,” he adds.

Using Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, which is made from 100% renewable raw materials, can reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by 75% to 95%* over the fuel’s life cycle compared to fossil diesel. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is fully compatible with all diesel engines and the existing fuel distribution infrastructure. Its similar chemical composition to fossil diesel makes it a drop-in replacement that can be used neat (100% concentration) without any changes to diesel-powered vehicles or their engines. The use of 100% renewable diesel is widely approved by vehicle and engine manufacturers.
