Valtra takes Neste MY Renewable Diesel to over 75 countries

Posted On March 12th, 2018 - 3:35 pm | by Oil and gas press

Valtra, a manufacturer of tractors, is the first factory in the world to fill its new tractors with Neste MY Renewable Diesel(TM), a fuel is produced entirely from waste and residues. Hence, Valtra takes Neste MY Renewable Diesel to over 75 countries, one tank at a time.

“In today’s world, it’s important to get through to customers with concrete actions. Neste MY gives us an easy way to make our operations more environmentally friendly. We are a large consumer of diesel, so this decision is really important,” says Valtra’s Marketing Director, Mikko Lehikoinen.

Every year, approximately 700,000 liters of fossil diesel will be replaced by Neste MY Renewable Diesel at Valtra. According to a research report* conducted at the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland, the use of renewable ‘drop-in’ fuels in diesel engines is an easy and quick way to reduce emissions. Neste MY Renewable Diesel is such a fuel, and it can be used in tractors and forklifts as such, with no need to change current engines.

The reduction in the amount of yearly emissions through Valtra’s adoption of renewable diesel is equivalent to the emissions produced by nearly 560 passenger cars, or up to 46,000 hours of tractor use without emissions. In addition to the first fill, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is also used for storing in new tractors and in the forklifts used at the factory.

“Ecological values and the environment are important to Valtra’s customers. Our customers are constantly striving to make better choices, and they will definitely take responsibility, as well as environmental and climate-related matters, such as fuel, into account when choosing a tractor manufacturer,”

Lehikoinen adds.

“Valtra starting to use Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a concrete action for a cleaner future. We are very delighted that we are able to help Valtra reduce the carbon footprint of their tractors in more than 75 countries. Neste MY can be freely used everywhere in the world throughout the year, because its winter quality can be used down to temperatures of -34 °C. In addition, it has an excellent shelf life,” says Mika Hyötyläinen, Vice President of Marketing for Marketing & Services business area at Neste.

In order to celebrate the cooperation around Neste MY Renewable Diesel, Neste and Valtra have launched a website called Wake Up Call to All Farmers. It gives a voice to those farmers around the world who have done concrete actions for a better tomorrow.
