Neste is partnering with Catom in the Netherlands to increase the supply and distribution of Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ and to contribute to the reduction of greenhouse gas emission in the transport sector.
Catom is a Dutch company active in the trade, distribution and sales of fuels and lubricants. With its subsidiary OK Oliecentrale, Catom is market leader in the Netherlands in selling high-quality fuels to end-customers in the Netherlands. Combined with Catom’s storage facilities at strategic locations and dedicated logistics – both over land and water – the availability of Neste MY Renewable Diesel will further increase in the Dutch market.
“We are very proud to welcome Catom as a new distributor. This means a strong logistics presence and a very capable B-to-B sales organization across the Netherlands for Neste MY Renewable Diesel,” says Peter Zonneveld, Vice President Sales Renewable Road Transport Europe and APAC at Neste. “With Neste MY Renewable Diesel greenhouse gas emissions can be reduced by as much as 75 to 95%* compared to fossil diesel,” Peter Zonneveld continues.
“We are a fast growing company, with ambitious goals. And very proud to be able to add Neste MY Renewable Diesel to our portfolio of fuels. A step forward that connects seamlessly to our ambitions to be able to answer our end customers’ current needs and wishes when it comes to transportation and sustainability,” says Jan Willem Westerhuis, CEO of Catom.
*) The GHG emission reduction percentage varies depending on the region-specific legislation that provides the methodology for the calculations (e.g. EU RED II 2018/2001/EU for Europe and US California LCFS for the US), and the raw material mix used to manufacture the product for each market.
