September 19, 2011 |

In Finland, Neste Oil and the Finnish Environment Institute have launched a joint algae research program with the Marine Research Centre as part of Neste’s efforts aimed at using algae oil as a raw material for producing NExBTL renewable diesel in the future.

Research with SYKE will focus on testing the lipid production capacity of different types of algae and analyzing how the quality and quantity of these lipids can be optimized by adjusting the conditions under which algae are grown. Launched this August, the program will last two years.
