We use approximately 10 different sustainably-produced raw materials each year to produce our renewable products at our renewables refineries in Finland, the Netherlands and Singapore. Proportions of individual raw materials in Neste's refining vary from year to year, depending on their availability, price, and specific market requirements.

What is it made of?
What is Neste MY Renewable Diesel made of?
Waste and residue raw materials at centre stage
In 2020, waste and residues accounted for 83% of Neste's total renewable raw material inputs globally.
We are constantly looking into diversifying our portfolio with new raw materials. Replacing fossil oil with renewable and recycled raw materials helps reduce crude oil dependency, greenhouse gas emissions and combat climate change.
Because of its unique production process, Neste MY Renewable Diesel can be made from a wide variety of waste and residues, ensuring continuous availability as demand increases, while Neste's eﬀorts intensify to expand the portfolio with innovative raw materials from new sources. A wide range of new raw materials are expected to be commercialised during the coming years.
Partnership & Innovation
Neste is taking steps to ensure the availability of raw materials, for example by acquiring equity stakes in companies specialised in the collection of waste and residues, and through the development of our technical capabilities to process more challenging raw materials.
