Espoo, Finland [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Neste Oil and Raisio have agreed a contract under which Raisio will supply 10,000 tons of rapeseed oil to Neste Oil this year for use as a feedstock at its NExBTL Renewable Diesel plant at Porvoo. The plant, which is due to start up this summer, is based on proprietary Neste Oil technology that can use a flexible mix of vegetable oil and animal fat to produce premium-quality biodiesel. In September last year Neste Oil contracted to buy virtually all the byproduct tallow produced by the Finnish food processing industry as raw material input for its biodiesel production. The NExBTL plant at Neste Oil’s Porvoo refinery is the first of its type and will have a capacity of 170,000 t/a. A second, identical plant is being built alongside, scheduled for completion late next year.
