Neste Marine™ 0.1 Co-processed
The tankers Suula and Kiisla will be using the Neste Marine 0.1 Co-processed marine fuel produced at Neste’s refinery in Porvoo, Finland.
“We are committed to working with our suppliers and partners to reduce emissions across our entire value chain. Powering two tankers transporting our renewable diesel with a marine fuel to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is yet another step towards reaching our sustainability targets,” said Markku Korvenranta, Executive Vice President for Oil Products business unit at Neste.
Neste Marine™ 0.1 Co-processed is an ISCC PLUS certified marine fuel and a lower-emission solution for marine professionals, including cargo owners and charterers. Its use enables up to 80% lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions over the fuel’s life cycle compared to fossil fuel.
“Our aim is to support shipping companies in their transition towards carbon neutrality. A year ago we introduced Neste Marine 0.1 Co-processed marine fuel to the market. The fuel is now commercially available in Finland and Denmark,” said Sveta Ukkonen, Head of Marine Fuels & Services at Neste.
“As a part of Neste’s target to reduce emissions across our value chain, we have now started transporting our renewable diesel to Sweden in two tankers that run on lower emission marine fuel themselves.”
