Neste’s Renewable Diesel Is Now Available In Italian Alps, Will Power Marcialonga Cross-Country Ski
On January 26, 2016, Biobased and Renewable Products Advocacy Group (BRAG®) member Neste Oil announced that Tamoil has begun selling arctic diesel containing renewable diesel produced by Neste in the northern Italian Alps region. The fuel, Gasolio Artico Tamoil – New Generation Diesel, will contain at least 20 percent renewable diesel and will reduce emissions while providing excellent performance in cold conditions. Neste's renewable diesel does not contain conventional fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) biodiesel, allowing the fuel to be stored for a long period of time without losing the ability to be used at any point. This year's Marcialonga cross-country ski race will use Gasolio Artico Tamoil – New Generation Diesel fuel to power snow tractors, service trucks, and other vehicles.
