Site Visit A – Visit To Neste’s Renewable Biofuel Facility To Observe How Renewable Energy/Fuels Can Be Commercialized Profitably And At The Same Time, Achieve Circular Economy Objectives

Climate change is a global challenge that concerns all of us. In this site tour, you will have a chance to witness how Neste tackles climate change by producing renewable diesel with lower Greenhouse Gas emissions. Our renewable diesel are mostly refined from waste and residues, such as used cooking oil and waste animal fat. Neste is the world’s largest producer of renewable diesel, and is the world 3rd most sustainable company on the global 100 list. Its Singapore refinery is one of the three refineries Neste has established that produces only renewable products. At the end of 2018, Neste decided to invest over 2 billion Singapore dollars to expand the overall capacity in Singapore by up to 1.3 million tons per annum, bringing the total Neste renewable product capacity close to 4.5 million tons annually in 2022. The production capacity of the refinery is 1 million tons per year. The location of the Neste refinery is excellent, as the Singapore city-state is a very central location from the point of view of product and feedstock flows. Singapore is the world’s third-largest center of oil refining.
