Global warming has made it necessary for all nations to take joint steps in order to decrease the harmful human effect on the environment. Producing biofuels from a by-product of pulp industry is responsible use of natural resources at its best.
Fintoil refines raw materials for fuels, adhesives and binders, health and wellness products and the aromatic chemical industry – with a minimal carbon footprint. All this from a from a by-product previously classified as waste.
Our clients who create products like biofuels can cut their greenhouse emissions up to 90 % compared to similar fossil fuels. Demand for renewable diesel is expected to grow strongly as it replaces the use of fossil diesel.
Our raw material fulfils the criteria of both the European Renewable Energy Directive (RED II), and the Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) of the United States. The full transparency of our supply chain ensures that our raw materials can be traced to their original sources.
Fintoil’s new production plant is a model example of modern circular economy and resource-wise thinking towards fossil-free transport. For example, crude fatty acid from our products enables the production of one hundred million liters of biodiesel annually, which is equivalent to the annual fuel consumption of about 110,000 cars.
Crude pine oil, on the other hand, is one of the sustainable raw materials for the production of advanced biofuels under the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive.
Our products are contributing to significant emission reductions and at the same time achieving the Finnish government’s carbon neutrality targets when production starts in the summer of 2022.
