In California, Neste’s NEXBTL renewable diesel is now being used by the city and county of San Francisco, California. San Francisco announced Dec. 11 that the city and county of San Francisco have completely ended their use of petroleum diesel in the city’s fleet and replaced it with renewable diesel. This switch from petroleum diesel to renewable diesel will achieve a significant 50 percent greenhouse gas emissions reduction to the city’s diesel fleet.
The city of San Francisco is now the largest city in North America to use renewable diesel. Earlier this year, the city of San Francisco tested Neste’s renewable diesel followed by an announcement that it will switch all of its diesel fleet to renewable diesel by the end of this year. The city operates 1,966 diesel-powered vehicles, which are all now using renewable diesel. The annual consumption is about 5.8 million gallons of diesel fuel. This change will completely end the use of petroleum diesel at the 53 city-run fueling facilities immediately.
