The BioSata project seeks carbon-free urban transport

BioSata is a biofuel project of Helsinki Region Transport (HSL) and the City of Helsinki Stara Construction Service that seeks a gradual conversion to biofuel operation of Helsinki Metropolitan Area bus transport and Stara vehicles and machinery.

High-quality biofuels are a cost-effective option for reducing traffic emissions. No new vehicles or distribution infrastructure will be required for their use.
UPM Biofuels is part of a three-year project co-ordinated by the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT) that seeks to increase the share of biofuels in combustion engines to at least 50 per cent in 2017 and 70-90 per cent in 2019.

BioSata is the largest co-ordinated demonstration project for advanced biofuels in Europe.

UPM BioVerno in marine transport

​UPM BioVerno diesel is the first wood-based fuel used in practical marine transport tests. The renewable diesel was tested by an international consortium including the international dredging company and shipping specialist Boskalis, the leading commercial supplier of marine biofuels GoodFuels Marine, and the Finnish engine and generator manufacturer Wärtsilä. The aim of the consortium was to promote the use of sustainable and economical marine fuels over a two-year pilot project.
