Neste's renewable diesel will be used in Super Bowl City fan village
As part of one of the world’s biggest sporting spectacles, The Super Bowl City fan village has been planned as a “Net Positive” event. This Net Positive commitment recognizes that as well as reducing negative environmental impacts the whole event should also pay more attention to enhancing the environmental, social and economic positive effects of both individual and collective activity.
Arranged between Jan 30th – Feb 7th in the San Francisco Bay Area, Super Bowl City, a free public event aims to reduce its impact on climate change by delivering a low emissions event with a focus on transportation and temporary power.
“It’s great that Neste can help the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee to create a sustainable event of spectacular size. We hope that the cleaner air and transport will make the event even more enjoyable for fans,”
says Kaisa Hietala, Neste’s Executive Vice President of Renewable Products.
Neste is the Super Bowl 50 Host Committee’s official Sustainability Partner and supplier of renewable diesel for running the power generators at Super Bowl City. In addition, a Fan Express charter bus system will run on Neste’s renewable diesel.
Greener electricity and cleaner air
Outdoor events often require building a temporary power grid and bringing in heavy diesel generators. As an alternative for producing greener electricity, Neste’s renewable diesel is the perfect solution. All generators used in Super Bowl City will run on Neste’s 100% sustainable, renewable diesel, reducing emissions and improving air quality. EPA Tier 4 generators will be used in the fan village to reduce emissions and noise.
Produced from wastes and residues, Neste’s renewable diesel will help to reduce the fuel carbon footprint of Super Bowl City by approximately 50% compared to petroleum diesel. Also, renewable diesel is a more pleasing alternative to people attending the event since it does not produce any of the unpleasant exhaust fumes generated by ordinary diesel.
Fan Express reduces traffic emissions
The Super Bowl 50 Host Committee has set up a Fan Express charter bus system to transport fans from the Bay Area to Levi’s stadium in Santa Clara on Super Bowl Sunday on February 7. The 100 buses are Google’s G-buses running on Neste’s renewable diesel.
Operating between pick-up points spread throughout the Bay Area, the Fan Express is expected to remove some 2,000 cars from the road on Super Bowl Sunday.
