CEO Insights team
“The opening of our new office in Australia marks another important step in Neste’s global growth strategy. Our aim is to become a global leader in renewable and circular solutions. By opening a local office, we are better placed to cooperate closely with our partners to secure the supply of waste and residue raw materials. This, in turn, enables us to serve the growing global demand for low-carbon solutions in transport and cities, aviation, polymers and chemicals,” says Matti Lehmus, Executive Vice President (Renewables Platform), Neste. “Different waste and residues account for approximately 80 percent of our renewable raw materials globally. With our own proprietary NEXBTL technology, renewable products can be refined flexibly from a wide variety of low-quality raw materials while the end-products retain their high quality. They support our customers in reducing their climate emissions,” he adds.

Singapore, the Netherlands and Finland. The company’s renewable products production capacity is today close to 3 million tons annually. The ongoing Singapore capacity expansion will bring the total renewable production capacity of Neste to 4.5 million tons annually in 2022. As a result of this investment, Neste will have more flexibility between different product solutions in Singapore and be able to produce renewable diesel, renewable aviation fuel and raw material for various polymers and chemicals markets. It also enables the use of increasingly low-quality waste and residue raw materials also for the existing refinery.
