Possibly Europe's largest renewable diesel refinery has opened at the Port of Rotterdam. Neste Oil, headquartered in Keilaranta, Finland, built the refinery to produce premium-quality NExBTL renewable diesel, perhaps the cleanest and highest-quality renewable diesel available.

The refinery, which employs 150 workers, was completed on schedule and on budget, and marks a major step forward in Neste's cleaner traffic strategy, the company says. The facility is capable of using Neste Oil’s wide feedstock base consisting of vegetable oils, byproducts of vegetable oil refining such as stearin, as well as waste oils and fats.
