Neste plans second biodiesel plant at Porvoo

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Dec. 1 -- Neste Oil plans to build a second 170,000-tonne/year biodiesel plant at its 200,000 b/cd refinery in Porvoo, Finland.

Estimated to cost of €100 million, the plant will produce biodiesel from animal fats and oil. Production is scheduled for about late 2008.

The first biodiesel plant under construction is scheduled to start up around mid-2007 (OGJ, Nov. 7, 2005, Newsletter).

The plants will use Neste's proprietary process to convert biological triglycerides into a synthetic biodiesel—NExBTL—a nonoxygenate hydrocarbon biodiesel compatible with the existing vehicle fleet, the company said.

The company also has biodiesel projects under way in France and Austria.
