August 17, 2023 [Neste]- Neste and ScanOcean have brought Neste’s marine fuel enabling lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the Swedish market. The first shipment of nearly 600,000 liters (500 metric tons) is now available at the Södertälje terminal for vessels bunkering in the Stockholm area as well as those in transit to Lake Mälaren. 


Neste Marine™ 0.1 Co-processed helps the marine sector start reducing its dependency on fossil fuels as the fuel produced by Neste consist also of renewable content. In the production of the fuel, crude oil is partly replaced with renewable raw materials.

“I am proud that we now have solutions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions also in Neste’s marine fuel portfolio. We are very pleased that our long-term partner ScanOcean is offering our lower-emission marine fuel to shipping companies bunkering in Sweden,” says Sveta Ukkonen, Head of Marine Fuels & Services at Neste. 

“We already have several interested clients, and we look forward to start delivering the co-processed DMA* in which crude oil is partly replaced with renewable raw materials. This is one of many key steps in ScanOceans journey to build a portfolio of sustainable products and services. The new lower-emission DMA is an extremely attractive fuel in this respect,” comments Jonatan Karlström, Managing Director at ScanOcean.

**) Emission reduction of the bio-based share of the product over the fuel’s life cycle compared to fossil fuel. The method used to calculate life cycle emissions and emission reduction is guided by the EU Renewable Energy Directive II (EU)2018/2001.

***) The sustainability characteristics of the marine fuel co-processed with renewable materials are certified with International Sustainability and Carbon Certification (ISCC PLUS and as of 2025 with ISCC EU) with a mass balance approach.
