Neste Oil is turning Vegetable Oil into Renewable fuel

Neste Oil has developed a NExBTL renewable diesel production technology.  NExBTL renewable diesel is produced by hydrotreating vegetable or waste oils. Based on the production process it is classified as hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO). It is a drop-in substitute of diesel which means that it is hydrocarbon oil with chemical composition comparable to fossil fuel.  Started in 1948 as a state petroleum company, Neste Oil’S headquarter is in Espoo, Finland. Neste Oil Feedstocks Neste Oil’s NExBTL renewable diesel production technology is feedstock […]
