Neste Oil continues to protect its innovations and patents

Neste Oil Corporation has filed a new patent infringement action against Dynamic Fuels, LLC, Syntroleum Corporation, and Tyson Foods, Inc. in the US District Court for the District of Delaware. This follows a patent infringement action filed by Neste Oil earlier this year against the same defendants concerning infringement of a Neste Oil product patent. The current action relates to infringement of a Neste Oil patent relating to the production process used to produce renewable diesel at Dynamic Fuels' plant in Geismar, Louisiana.

"Neste Oil has protected its proprietary NExBTL technology with a number of patents. We will actively defend this technology, which is very important for the Group's business, worldwide," says Matti Hautakangas, Neste Oil's General Counsel.

Neste Oil is the world's leading producer of premium-quality renewable diesel and has approx. 2 million t/a of NExBTL renewable diesel capacity at sites in Singapore, the Netherlands, and Finland.
