Today, the majority of construction vehicles rely on diesel fuel. It’s no wonder, given diesel’s energy density, driving range and reliability. But because the majority of these vehicles continue to run on fossil diesel, the construction industry is under pressure to lower its considerable carbon footprint. Indeed, in competitive bids, a proven commitment to sustainability frequently gives operators an edge—demonstrating that they’re invested in helping customers achieve their own climate and environmental goals. Enter Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, a sustainable drop-in fuel that reduces emissions by up to 80 percent compared to fossil diesel.
No matter how near or far your project sites may be, Neste’s supply channels—which include cardlocks, bulk delivery and mobile fueling—ensure product availability. Wherever you are, you can be certain of the quality of Neste MY, which meets all ASTM D975 and state and federal diesel specifications.
Let’s make something clear: Renewable diesel is different from biodiesel. With the same chemical properties as fossil diesel, Neste MY delivers comparable benefit and performance to your fleet, while boosting your competitiveness in procurement.
How Neste MY benefits the construction industry
Easy to switch
Fully compatible with your existing diesel infrastructure, no costly overhauls, new equipment or additional investment required. Just drop-in, drive off, and immediately make progress toward your sustainability goals.
Low environmental impact
Made from a mix of 10 plus different feedstocks, mainly wastes and residues and various vegetable oils, sourced from supply chain partners who meet strict sustainability standards.
Compliant with regulations
Neste MY Renewable Diesel meets the same specification as fossil diesel – ASTM D975 and EN 15940. Its lubricity provides extra protection for fuel pumps and fuel injectors.
Clean-burning, pure hydrocarbon fuel contributes to maintenance improvements, virtually eliminating the risk of deposits that can negatively affect filters and injectors.
“After running Neste MY in our vehicles for a while, I noticed that I was not taking my trucks out of service for routine maintenance as often as before the switch. When I was using other fuels, I had to take the trucks out to do a DPF service every 6 to 8 months. We’ve been using Neste MY for about a year, and we have never had to clean them yet.”
