Colonial Oil Industries and TICO Lead Sustainable Energy Transition in the Southeast

SAVANNAH, Ga. - Feb. 1, 2024 - PRLog -- Savannah, Georgia – Colonial Oil Industries, Inc. one of the largest independent oil and gas companies in the United States, is proud to announce a partnership with Neste, TICO, and Gateway Terminals in the offering of renewable diesel to customers and businesses in the region, marking a significant stride towards a more sustainable future in the Southeast.

"As a trusted supplier of quality fuels and logistics solutions for more than 100 years, Colonial Oil is proud to expand our offering to meet the sustainable energy needs of our land and marine customers. We endeavor to be the energy partner of choice in the markets we serve and our strategic relationship with Neste accelerates this ambition," says Bob Kenyon, President of Colonial Oil Industries, Inc.

This partnership increases the availability of renewable diesel in the State of Georgia and
throughout the Southeast. The renewable diesel will be supplied by Neste, the world's leading producer of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel and a forerunner in developing renewable and circular feedstock solutions for polymers and chemicals. Renewable diesel is a lower-carbon alternative to traditional diesel fuel, produced from renewable raw materials such as used cooking oil and animal fat waste. When compared to fossil diesel, the use of renewable diesel significantly reduces greenhouse gas emissions over the fuel's life cycle, making it a crucial player in the global effort to combat climate change.

"TICO is proud to partner with Colonial, GPA, and Gateway Terminals to lead the transition to renewable diesel, beginning with a Q1 deployment in our operations supporting the Port of Savannah. TICO Terminal Services and TICO Manufacturing are committed to advancing sustainability in terminal equipment driven by technologies that are both advanced and reasonable. TICO is proud to bring sustainability solutions that are immediate and reasonable," says Duncan Pindar, Executive Vice President of TICO.
