Neste Oil signs algae oil off-take contract with RAE

June 24, 2014 |

In Finland, Neste Oil and Renewable Algal Energy (RAE), a US-based algae biomass producer, have signed a contingent commercial algae oil off-take agreement. Algae oil is one of the alternatives being researched by Neste Oil for use as a feedstock for producing NEXBTL renewable diesel in the future.

Cooperation with RAE is intended to secure Neste Oil’s access to a cost-effective supply of industrial volumes of algae oil in the future. Implementation of the agreement will require RAE to increase its algae oil production capacity and to comply with the requirements of biofuel legislation with strict sustainability criteria in the US and the EU throughout the production chain.

RAE anticipates that it will be able to produce commercial-scale volumes of algae oil from 2016 onwards.
