"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," said Matti Lehmus, Executive Vice President of Renewables Platform at 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," Lehmus added.
Neste has renewable diesel production facilities in Singapore, the Netherlands and Finland. The ongoing Singapore capacity expansion will bring the total renewable production capacity of Neste to 4.5 million tons annually in 2022.
Neste's Australia office is registered as a fully-owned subsidiary of Neste, located in the city center of Melbourne.
