Municipal solid waste

Waste has always been seen as an opportunity for us at Neste. We have learned how to refine various liquid waste materials into the best renewable fuels in the world. And this is why we are now looking at the next challenge – solid waste. Municipal solid waste can consist of almost any discarded materials, depending on legislation and the degree of recycling in a given locality.

Our aim is to explore untapped solid waste streams that can be valorised. Our challenge is to find suitable sources and locations where we can create efficient value chains, taking us from waste collection through pre-treatment and eventually to refining.

Our Aviation feedstock business platform is actively searching for partners and technologies to turn municipal solid waste into sustainable fuels and chemicals
