McDonald’s restaurants in the Netherlands will recycle the used cooking oil from French fries into Neste MY Renewable Diesel™. The fuel will be used in HAVI trucks that deliver goods to McDonald’s.

Neste MY Renewable Diesel is made from 100% renewable raw materials and enables customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90 % over the fuel’s life cycle compared to fossil diesel. The fuel has no aromatics or impurities and requires no modifications to existing diesel-powered engines. Besides the Netherlands, Neste MY Renewable Diesel is available for customers in Finland, Sweden, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and in the United States in California and Oregon.

HAVI collects the used cooking oil from all 252 Dutch McDonald’s restaurants. Neste then converts this used oil at its Rotterdam, The Netherlands, refinery into the renewable diesel that fuels HAVI’s trucks. Together with HAVI, Neste developed a roadmap to see what steps they could take to reduce their carbon emissions from the logistics side and to make the logistics more future-proof. In addition to switching to renewable diesel, this entails a look into hybrid and electric vehicles and using logistic city hubs to reduce inner-city movements.
