The switch will have a reduction in output of greenhouse gases by up to 80%
An Eastern Contra Costa County Transit Authority in California, Tri Delta Transit, has decided to change their entire fleet of transit buses from operating on fossil diesel to using only Neste MY Renewable Diesel(TM).
Produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a low-carbon fuel, which cuts greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% and significantly reduces tailpipe emissions, all the while enhancing fleet performance. A drop-in alternative to fossil diesel, Neste MY Renewable Dieselis distributed via the same fuel infrastructure.
Mike Furnary, director of marketing at Tri Delta Transit said, "Tri Delta is committed to operating our service safely, efficiently and responsibly. By switching to renewable diesel, we will reduce our output of greenhouse gases by up to 80%."
Providing over 3,000,000 trips each year to a population of more than 250,000 residents, Tri Delta Transit, operates 14 local bus routes. Since there's no smoke and fuel odor, eliminated by switching to Neste MY renewable diesel, Tri Delta's 3,000,000 trips a year are now more sustainable and more rider-friendly.
"Neste is happy to have a forward-thinking company like Tri Delta Transit join the ranks of other progressive companies leading the way towards sustainable solutions. By making the switch to Neste MY Renewable Diesel, they are committed to reducing emissions and protecting the environment,"said Jeremy Baines, vice president of sales, Neste US, Inc.
Kevin Moody, maintenance director at Tri Delta Transit, said "Since changing fuels, we have received zero complaints from drivers regarding vehicle power and reliability, and there has been no change to routine maintenance.” PWKD07122017
