Material efficiency and renewability are key aspects of the UPM BioVerno production process. UPM BioVerno is derived from wood-based tall oil using hydrotreatment. This innovative production process was developed by UPM.
Crude tall oil is a natural wood extract, mainly from coniferous trees, gained as a residue of pulp production. Hence, it should be noted that no additional harvesting is required to produce UPM BioVerno. Tall oil is a renewable resource, which means that it offers significant environmental benefits compared to fossil fuels.
