Why waste perfectly
good waste when
we can fly with it?
Turning waste into high-quality sustainable aviation fuel
Neste MY SAF is made from
100% renewable raw materials
Neste uses a wide variety of globally-sourced raw materials each year to produce its renewable products. Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ is produced from 100% renewable waste and residue raw materials, such as used cooking oil, animal waste fat and fish waste fat.
With our proprietary NEXBTL™ technology, renewable products can be refined flexibly from a wide variety of low-quality raw materials while the end products retain their high quality.
In 2021, waste and residues accounted for 92% of our total renewable raw material inputs globally. Efficient utilization of wastes and residues is one of the cornerstones of the circular economy. Producing high-quality products from waste and residues is an example of efficient use of resources. It also provides one of the key means to reduce dependency on fossil resources.
Neste only accepts sustainably-produced renewable raw materials from carefully selected partners. Sustainability of the raw materials used in the production of renewable fuels is a minimum requirement for us. Read more about renewable raw material sourcing at Neste.
Continuous research on diversifying the raw materials portfolio
Innovative new raw materials
Neste invests heavily in innovation with 25% of our workforce employed in R&D and Engineering. We continue to work towards increasing the availability of renewable and recycled raw materials, while also developing technologies to diversify our current raw material portfolio further.
In the short term, we continue to focus on waste and residue raw materials. In the medium to long term, we are exploring the use of other types of raw materials, such as novel vegetable oils, agricultural and forest harvesting waste and residues, algae, municipal solid waste and Power-to-Liquid for CO2 conversion, among others.
