Products' carbon footprint

With our renewable products, our customers can significantly reduce the carbon footprint from their own actions.

Flow Festival reduces carbon footprint by using NEXBTL

In 2014, Helsinki-based Flow Festival reduced its carbon footprint by using our NEXBTL renewable diesel in electricity generation. Use of the product resulted in a 22 ton drop in emissions during the event. This is equivalent to the amount of emissions generated by flying nearly three times around the world.

Product's carbon footprint closely monitored throughout the entire life cycle

We calculate the carbon footprint of our products over their entire life cycle, from the raw material production to their end-use. The majority of the greenhouse gas emissions associated with renewable diesel are generated during raw material production and are linked to factors such as fertilizer usage.

We continuously develop greenhouse gas calculations on the basis of international standards and legislation. Our methods have been verified by independent, third-party experts as meeting the strict quality standards required for biofuels.

Raw material Emission reduction
Waste and residues (e.g. waste animal fat, waste fish fat, palm fatty acid distillate, PFAD) 85–90%
Crude palm oil 51%
Other vegetable oils (eg. rapeseed and camelina oil) 42–55%
