In the Netherlands, Neste, McDonald’s Netherlands and HAVI have joined forces to create a circular economy partnership. The collaboration will see McDonald’s restaurants in the Netherlands recycling the used cooking oil from French fries into Neste MY Renewable Diesel. The fuel will be used in HAVI trucks that deliver goods to McDonald’s. Neste MY Renewable Diesel enables customers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 90%** over the fuel’s life cycle compared to fossil diesel.
In the circular economy partnership, McDonald’s’ supply chain partner HAVI plays a central role as the collector of the used cooking oil from all 252 Dutch McDonald’s restaurants. Neste then converts this used cooking oil at its Rotterdam refinery into the renewable diesel that fuels HAVI’s trucks.
