Finnish renewable fuels producer Neste has commissioned storage capacity for sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel at leading energy industry infrastructure provider Vopak’s Los Angeles terminal in California.

The move was a major step in further expanding the availability of Neste’s renewable fuels, including Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel and Neste My Renewable Diesel, in the Southern California region, the company said on 27 September.

Located in the Port of Los Angeles, Vopak’s Los Angeles Terminal is well-connected to fuel logistics via vessels, barges, trucks and pipelines, according to Neste.

“Our co-operation with Vopak shows how repurposing existing fuel distribution infrastructure can accelerate the much-needed transition to renewable energy,” said Annika Tibbe, acting president for Neste USA.

Headquartered in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, Vopak is a leading independent tank storage company.
