Rolls-Royce and Neste in sustainable fuels deal

Rolls-Royce and Neste have signed an MOU to build a strategic partnership on the implementation of sustainable fuels for diesel engines.

The main components of the agreement are: promoting the use of existing internal combustion engines for sustainable fuels; advancing the transition from fossil fuels to sustainable fuels; and knowledge sharing on high-quality renewable diesel (HVO).

Tobias Ostermaier, president – Stationary Power Solutions, within the Rolls-Royce Power Systems business unit, said: “Through our Net Zero at Power Systems sustainability programme, we have committed to realigning our mtu product portfolio so that by 2030, sustainable fuels and new mtu technologies will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 35 percent compared to 2019. This near-term target plays an important role in helping the whole of Rolls-Royce realise its net zero ambitions. Our agreement with Neste, the world’s leading producer of renewable diesel, will help us achieve our goals and those of our customers.”
