In cooperation with Hesburger, Neste will produce renewable diesel fuel from used cooking oil collected from more than 300 restaurants.

Neste and Hesburger, the largest fast food restaurant chain in the Baltic countries and Finland, will establish significant cooperation on the circular economy. Spent cooking oil from more than 300 Hesburger restaurants in Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Finland will be recycled to produce Neste My renewable diesel.

Hesburger, on the other hand, will use it in most of its vehicles in Finland, reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90% * compared to using fossil diesel.

“We reduce emissions by investing in plant protein products and energy efficiency, as well as planning our deliveries efficiently. Recycling and the circular economy have also been important focal points in the development of our activities, and this cooperation between the circular economy and Neste is perfectly aligned with our goals. Every year our restaurants in Latvia, Estonia, Lithuania and Finland produce up to 420 tons of used cooking oil, which is collected and transported in the most environmentally friendly way possible. Neste, on the other hand, uses cooking oil and other organic waste and raw material waste to produce renewable diesel for use also in Hesburger trucks. As used cooking oil is collected by cars that deliver products to restaurants, cooperation will not result in additional mileage ”, Says Ieva Salmela, director of marketing and international development of Hesburger.

“The fight against climate change requires close cooperation between companies. This cooperation between the circular economy and Hesburger is a concrete example of how cooperation can improve sustainability. At the same time, our climate action adds value to consumers visiting the Hesburger restaurants, as the cooking oil used to make their French fries can be used as a raw material for renewable diesel to reduce transportation emissions. In this way, we can give consumers the opportunity to make more responsible daily purchasing decisions. in the Baltic region and Finland ”, says Heidi Peltonen, Director of Neste Sustainability Partnerships.
