Neste wants to be a key contributor to a decarbonized society, focusing particularly on transports with renewable fuels like biodiesel and bio-propane which the company has pioneered. It is currently operating the world’s first renewable diesel refinery in Porvoo, the other two are in Rotterdam and Singapore.
Circular Economy: Neste has processed 2.2 million tons of animal fat and plant oil residues in 2016. Those form 80% of the production inputs for the company renewable biodiesel production. Certified palm oil makes-up the rest.
They are now embarking into the development of plant oil based plastics in order to valorize the by-products of their biodiesel crackers. Worth noting : their hydrogenation process produces propane as by-product which can be used as such for energy, and not glycerol like the most current biodiesel refining processes.
