World first for biodiesel

UPM BioVerno renewable diesel to be distributed in Finland

UPM has signed a sales agreement for UPM BioVerno renewable diesel, produced in UPM's Lappeenranta Biorefinery, with NEOT (North European Oil Trade). NEOT specialises in oil and biofuels wholesale. Large Finnish service stations, ABC, St1 and Shell, get their fuels from NEOT.

UPM BioVerno is made from a pulp production residue called crude tall oil. The Finnish made fuel works well in all diesel engines and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. Tests conducted with the VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland showed that UPM BioVerno diesel works in cars just as well as any regular diesel.
