Neste supplying renewable diesel to more than 1,100 San Diego city vehicles

October 31, 2016 |

In California, the city of San Diego has recently started using Neste renewable diesel in its vehicle fleet consisting of service trucks, refuse packers, dump trucks, construction equipment, and street sweepers, to name a few. By switching from conventional petroleum diesel to Neste renewable diesel, the city of San Diego joins California’s cleanest city fleets including the cities of San Francisco, Oakland, Walnut Creek, Carlsbad, and Sacramento County.

While the switch from petroleum diesel to waste- and residue-based Neste renewable diesel helps improve local air quality, its use additionally reduces San Diego diesel fleet’s greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80 percent, contributing to the city’s ambitious climate targets. More than 1,100 vehicles and equipment, representing approximately 25 percent of the city’s fleet, run on Neste renewable diesel, and no performance issues have been reported.
