Renewable raw material sourcing

Neste only accepts sustainably-produced renewable raw materials from carefully selected partners. Sustainability of the raw materials used in the production of renewable fuels is a minimum requirement for us. 

Neste’s supply chain management is based on the company’s sustainability policies and principles

How do we ensure our supply chain sustainability?

Wastes and residues make up 83% of our renewable raw material usage

Our proprietary NEXBTL technology allows the use of almost any vegetable oil or waste fat in the production of renewable products. In recent years, we have not only expanded our raw material portfolio but also significantly increased the share of waste and residues in our total renewable raw material usage.

83% of our raw material usage is waste and residues formed in industrial processes, such as waste animal fat or fatty acid distillates, which are vegetable oil processing residues (e.g. PFAD). We have achieved the capability to use only waste and residue raw materials in our renewable diesel and sustainable aviation  fuel production. We have a target to grow the share of waste and residues from the current 83% to 100% of our total renewable raw material inputs by 2025.
