Over the short term, the collaboration aims to replace several thousand tons of fossil feedstock in the production of polymers with alternative, sustainable feedstock: biobased and waste plastic based hydrocarbons.
Neste produces its biobased hydrocarbons entirely from renewable raw materials, such as waste and residue oils and fats. For the production of waste plastic derived feedstock, Neste focuses on plastics that cannot be mechanically recycled and have previously been directed to incineration and landfilling.

At the beginning of 2021, the Finnish government bio mandate for renewable fuels will be extended to fuel oil. The mandate is intended to promote the use of biofuel oil to replace light fuel oil in heavy equipment, stationary motors and heating to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support Finland's and the EU's climate goals.

BELT, the Council of the Atikamekw Nation and renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel provider Neste have been jointly assessing the feasibility of utilizing sustainably-sourced forest-based biomass and residues for advanced sustainable biofuels production since 2017.
The BioEnergie La Tuque project would utilize 650,000 metric tpy of forest biomass and aligns with and supports Quebec's established forest product industry and commitment to sustainable forestry management and biodiversity, according to the release.

As previously reported, Neste says the demand for fossil oil products will continue to decline, and the share of renewable energy solutions will continue to grow in the coming years. The COVID-19 pandemic has substantially accelerated the decline in demand for oil products which is not expected to recover to previous levels. Fundamental changes are therefore needed to secure the competitiveness of Neste's Oil Products business and to improve its productivity, resource efficiency and adaptiveness to market changes.
The changes are expected to result in annual fixed cost savings of approximately €50 million.

ANA and Neste plan to expand the collaboration to a multi-year agreement after 2023. Neste currently has a capacity of 100,000 tpy of SAF but is increasing capacity with a Singapore refinery expansion on a possible additional investment in its Rotterdam refinery. With these additions Neste's SAF production capacity will come in at 1.5 million tpy by 2023, according to the release.
Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ is made from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue raw materials. The fuel is blended with fossil jet fuel and then certified to meet ASTM jet fuel specifications.

"We need front-runners to lead the way in sustainable aviation. The ambitious target now set by the Swedish government is an example others should follow in order to support the aviation industry in meeting its emission reduction targets. It also creates the necessary certainty for sustainable aviation fuel producers to invest in increasing the production", says Neste VP for Renewable Aviation Europe, Jonathan Wood.
Earlier this year, Norway introduced a 0.5 pct biofuel blending mandate. There will be enough capacity on the market to supply the anticipated volumes of sustainable aviation fuel to Sweden and Norway. Neste is already producing commercial scale volumes of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™, refined from renewable waste and residue raw materials. In its neat form and over the lifecycle, the fuel can reduce up to 80 pct of greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil jet fuel, according to Neste.
Neste's sustainable aviation fuel capacity is currently 100,000 tpy. With Neste's Singapore refinery expansion on the way and possible additional investment in the Neste Rotterdam refinery, Neste will have the capacity to produce some 1.5 million tpy of sustainable aviation fuel by 2023.
The global aviation industry has set ambitious targets to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions from air transport, including carbon-neutral growth from 2020 and beyond, and a 50 pct reduction of net aviation carbon emissions by 2050. Aviation needs multiple solutions for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Currently, sustainable aviation fuels offer the only viable alternative to fossil fuels for powering aircrafts, according to the Neste release.

According to Neste, only one-third of the 27 million tpy of post-consumer plastic waste generated in Europe is collected for recycling. In January 2018, the EU released its Strategy for Plastics in a Circular Economy. In the EU Waste package, recycling target for plastic packaging was raised to 50 pct by 2025 and 55 pct by 2030.
In addition to exploring ways to utilize plastic waste as raw material, Neste is helping the plastics industry and various plastics-consuming companies to reduce their crude oil dependency and climate emissions by producing durable and recyclable renewable plastics from bio-based raw materials, such as waste fats and oils.
