Waste-based NEXBTL in demand in California

Neste helps US cities and companies to reach climate goals

  • Propel Fuels launched California's most advanced low-carbon diesel fuel, Diesel HPR, at its retail stations. HPR contains 98.5% of NEXBTL.
  • The City of Oakland, California began filling up its vehicles with NEXBTL in order to reduce the emissions of their municipal fleet. Oakland is the first major US city to convert their entire fleet to renewable diesel. 
  • Neste’s NEXBTL helps to facilitate UPS's shift to alternative fuels. First NEXBTL will be used by UPS's fleet operating in the USA starting mid-2015 and the mutual intention is to expand the cooperation globally. 
  • Google is moving forward with Neste's innovative NEXBTL renewable diesel which is being used on selected Google's shuttle buses (gBuses) in Silicon Valley, California.

"A good example of innovation for our future is Neste's NEXBTL renewable diesel fuel that Google has decided to use on selected gBus fleets," says Jesper Stormholt, Regional Manager, Google for Work, Nordic.
