Fossil fuel is the lifeblood of the mobility sector and while the world is transitioning towards electric transportation it will be a long time until lose our dependency on diesel / gas. Until we achieve “clean transportation” need an intermediate solution with lower GHG emissions for the mobility sector – Renewable Diesel
Categories: mobility and pollution
The Technology – A new type of wheel that is more sustainable, resilient and efficient
- Neste is an innovative oil company creating renewable diesel from waste, animal fats and vegetable oil. Neste’s renewable diesel is chemically identical to “regular” diesel.
- Neste’s renewable diesel has 90% lower emissions compared to regular diesel
- By 2030 ~10% of global car fleet will be electric, which means that ~90% will need cleaner gas / diesel fuel to run on. Furthermore, cleaner jet fuel is the only viable way to reduce pollution from the aviation sector.
- The company is also working on developing bioplastics, which they hope will hit the market by 2018.
Individuals using transportation (i.e. practically everyone) – as the company’s solutions target almost every mode of transportation.
Step 1: Expand production capabilities of renewable diesel.
Step 2: Partner with leading companies, cities or institutions to showcase and pilot the product to gain public and regulatory acceptance.
Step 3: Develop new bio-based petroleum products to displace fossil fuels.
