Family-owned energy services provider to supply New York City fleets with renewable diesel through new multi-year contract that advances the city’s sustainability initiatives

Approved Oil Company recently secured a multi-year contract to supply New York City fleets with renewable diesel in an “historic” move that aligns with the city’s green goal of reducing carbon emissions within its borders.

The Department of Citywide Administrative Services (DCAS) awarded the contract, Approved Oil reported. Under the terms of the deal, the family-owned company will distribute renewable diesel to New York city agencies, including the Department of Sanitation (DSNY), the New York Police Department (NYPD), the New York Fire Department (FDNY), the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), the Department of Transportation (DOT), the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR), and the Department of Correction (DOC).

“This momentous partnership with the Department of Citywide Administrative Services marks a significant milestone in our ongoing commitment to environmental responsibility,” Vincent Theurer, Approved Oil president and CEO, said in a news release. “We are extremely proud to lead the charge in providing cleaner fuel alternatives that align with the city’s green objectives.

“This collaboration underscores our dedication to a greener, healthier future for all New Yorkers.”

Renewable Diesel, which is derived from sources such as vegetable oils, animal fats, and used cooking oil, represents an advancement in sustainable fuel technology, Approved Oil maintained. The fule is molecularly the same as petroleum-based diesel and meets ASTM International’s standard for Diesel Fuel Oils (D-975). Adoption offers a transition for existing diesel engines, reducing the pollutants and greenhouse gases emitted.

“Approved Oil Company’s steadfast commitment to being a leading supplier of sustainable energy solutions is now making a historic impact on NYC’s energy landscape,” the company concluded. “As a local NYC-based company, Approved Oil is particularly proud to have secured this landmark multi-year deal to supply the city with renewable diesel, thereby contributing in a major way to supporting NYC’s green initiatives.

“Ultimately, this will help pave the way for a cleaner and more sustainable future for all New Yorkers and beyond.”
