Neste Renewable Isoalkane – sustainable to the core
As with Neste’s other renewable products, Neste Renewable Isoalkane offers premium quality, and thanks to its renewable origin helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while being biodegradable in accordance with OECD 301.
Neste Renewable Isoalkane is produced using Neste’s proprietary NEXBTL technology, a hydrotreatment process that can convert natural oils, such as vegetable oil and a range of industrial waste and residues, into high-purity isoparaffinic hydrocarbon oils with a low sulphur and aromatic content. All renewable raw materials used in producing Neste Renewable Isoalkane are sustainably produced.
- Odorless – low aromatic content
- High purity
- High chemical stability
- Low surface tension – superior wetting
- Compatible with most other organic oils and packaging materials
