Neste RE is a raw material for plastics that is made entirely out of renewable and recycled materials. It is a drop-in solution that can be used on its own or in a blend to create products of identical quality to those made out of conventional virgin fossil raw materials.
Neste’s ambition is to collaborate with the industry forerunners to create a world where plastics are produced from renewable and recycled materials without virgin fossil oil.
Renewable & recycled
Neste-produced Neste RE is produced without virgin fossil oil. It consists 100% of renewable and recycled material that can be used to reduce the need for fossil oil based material in the production of climate-friendlier polymers and chemicals.
There is an urgent need to develop solutions to curb the increasing climate emissions while simultaneously tackling the global plastic waste challenge. Neste believes that accelerating the shift to a circular plastic economy provides solutions to both.
