Neste and VTT strengthen their partnership through research investments

May 26, 2019 |

In Finland, Neste and VTT agreed on strategic cooperation which fosters the joint use and development of research infrastructures. The cooperation aims at strengthening Finnish expertise in bio and circular economy as well as developing cleaner fuel solutions.

The strategic cooperation of Neste and VTT is based on two separate investment decisions for Finnish research infrastructure. Neste is currently building a vehicle testing facility in Kilpilahti, Porvoo, Finland and VTT has decided to invest in a research infrastructure for catalytic processes at its Bioruukki pilot centre in Espoo, Finland. The agreements signed today will allow Neste and VTT to use these research infrastructures in their future projects.

The research facility built in Porvoo makes it possible to study the energy consumption of vehicles and to develop new solutions for emission reduction. With the partnership agreement, VTT can use Neste’s vehicle testing facility in its own research projects. In addition, Neste will utilize the research environment of catalytic processes funded by VTT in Espoo. This research infrastructure enables partners to develop cleaner solutions for fuels and chemicals.

Bio-based fuels and chemical solutions, as well as the development of the related chemical process technology expertise are central to VTT’s strategy.
