Neste lays foundation stone for extension of Singapore biorefinery

July 31, 2019 |

In Singapore, following up from the EUR1.4 billion investment to expand its renewable products production capacity in Singapore, Neste held a foundation stone ceremony to officially mark the extension of the new production line. The construction started at the beginning of the year.

As a result of the investment, Neste will have more options to choose between different product solutions in the whole production system. In addition to producing renewable diesel, all Neste’s renewable product refineries are able to produce renewable aviation fuel and raw materials for various polymers and chemicals materials. The investment in Singapore will include additional logistics capabilities and enhanced raw material pretreatment for the use of increasingly low-quality waste and residue raw materials also for the existing refinery.

The Singapore expansion will extend Neste’s renewable product overall capacity in Singapore by up to 1.3 million tons per annum, bringing the total renewable product capacity close to 4.5 million tons annually in 2022. Neste’s target is to start up the new production line in Singapore during the first half of 2022.
