NJNG targets reducing GHG emissions with HVO

NJNG targets reducing GHG emissions with HVO
Neste MY Renewable Diesel can be used in its neat form or blended with fossil diesel at any ratio. It also performs well in extreme cold conditions and can be stored over long periods without deterioration (photo courtesy Neste).

In the United States (US), Neste Oyj, a leading producer of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), and New Jersey Natural Gas (NJNG), the principal subsidiary of New Jersey Resources Corporation, look to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with "Neste MY Renewable Diesel".

Expanding on its sustainability leadership, NJNG has announced that 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 its 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. 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 Carrie Song, SVP of Commercial, Renewable Products at Neste.

Approximately 70 medium-duty trucks in NJNG’s fleet now run on renewable diesel. These vehicles will account for over 57,000 (US) gallons (≈ 215,745 litres) of renewable diesel.

Collaboration with leading fuel distributors

Testing and the delivery of Neste MY Renewable Diesel is made possible by Neste’s long-term distributor Diesel Direct, the nation’s largest mobile on-site fueling company, and their partnership with KW Rastall Oil, NJNG’s fuel supplier.

Since 2018, Diesel Direct has been distributing Neste MY Renewable Diesel to hard-to-abate industries in the US, including road transportation, construction, agriculture, and the marine sector.

Replicating its value chain in New Jersey, Neste supports the state’s goal to reduce GHG emissions from transportation.

Innovation and new technologies will be critical to reducing emissions economywide and reaching 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. Together with Neste and KW Rastall, our fuel supplier, we are helping lower transportation-related emissions in New Jersey, said Patrick Migliaccio, SVP and COO of New Jersey Natural Gas.

In addition to reducing GHG emissions, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is the first “TOP TIER” renewable diesel fuel certified for its high quality.

Neste is increasing its annual production capacity to 1.9 billion gallons (≈ 7.19 billion litres) of renewable products globally in 2024.

It was one of the first companies to supply renewable diesel to states on the West Coast, including California (CA) and Oregon (OR), and the company is rapidly expanding its production, fueling station network, and distribution capabilities to meet the growing demand across the nation.
