Neste launches family of more sustainable lubricants
Neste is introducing a new Neste ReNew™ lubricant product family in Finland, Sweden, the Baltic countries and Poland during the first quarter of 2023. The new lubricants are produced with renewable or re-refined base oils and high-quality additives.
For lubricants produced with renewable base oils, the content of renewable origin is at least 60% for base oils, which means that the content of the finished lubricant is nearly 50% renewable, said Neste.
“Neste’s goal is to help customers reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by at least 20 million tons annually by 2030 with renewable and circular economy solutions. Both our corporate and private customers consider it important to curb climate change with solutions based on renewable raw materials, renewable energy and the circular economy. We can offer them a wide range of tools for this. The new Neste ReNew lubricant product family complements our offering of more sustainable solutions,” said Joni Pihlström, who leads B2B sales for Neste’s Marketing & Services business unit in Finland.
For nearly 40 years Neste has been researching and developing lubricants that work even in demanding conditions and increase the performance and energy efficiency of engines and hydraulics. Neste’s existing lubricant solutions cover various motor oils for light vehicles, heavy-duty vehicle and agricultural motor oils, hydraulic oils, industrial lubricants and lubricating greases. The new Neste ReNew product family containing also renewable or re-refined base oils includes high-quality motor oils for gasoline and diesel engines of cars, vans and for hybrid use, as well as universal tractor oil and hydraulic oil for agriculture and machinery.
“Lubricants play a role in reducing carbon footprint. The new Neste ReNew lubricants are a drop-in solution with which one can replace most lubricants of corresponding performance. Adopting these more sustainable alternatives is therefore easy. With their choice of lubricants, our customers can take a step towards a more sustainable future and ensure high performance of vehicles and machinery at the same time,” said Pihlström.
