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.
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.
