Neste has partnered with Coleman Oil Company to provide greater access to renewable diesel fuel in Washington state. Coleman is a provider of fuels, biofuels, lubricants, and related products, based in Lewiston, Idaho.

This partnership expands the availability of Neste MY renewable diesel to key locations in Coleman Oil’s network of commercial fueling stations and other distribution channels. These include bulk fuel delivery and retail stations across Washington. 

The deal will help provide more of the lower-emission fuel to the state’s construction, agriculture, heavy duty trucking industries, and municipalities.

“Washington State has demonstrated its commitment to sustainability by becoming the latest state to implement a Clean Fuel Standard,” said Carrie Song, vice president, renewable road transportation, Americas at Neste.

“Today, Neste is supporting the state’s goal of reducing emissions from the transportation sector by providing renewable diesel to the companies and cities in Washington. We are excited to partner with Coleman Oil; their massive distribution network is crucial for us in making renewable diesel available across the state.”

Better in Cold Weather

Made from sustainably sourced, 100% renewable raw materials, Neste MY renewable diesel can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 75% over the fuel’s life cycle compared with fossil diesel, the company said.

In addition to reducing GHG emissions, renewable diesel delivers strong performance, according to Neste. That’s because renewable diesel does not contain sulfur, oxygen or aromatic compounds. Therefore, it combusts cleaner than conventional diesel fuel.

Additionally, Neste, said MY renewable diesel performs well in extreme cold conditions (down to 4 degrees below zero) and can be stored over long periods of time without deterioration, making it an ideal choice for businesses that operate in Washington, where the average daytime temperatures can range from the upper 30s to around zero in the winter.
