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

Supply chain sustainability

Wastes and residues make up 92% 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.

In the first half year of 2021 92% of our raw material usage was 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.
