UPM BioVerno advanced biofuels: sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels

UPM BioVerno is a fuel made from crude tall oil, a residue of pulp production. Our biofuels have been developed by UPM in Finland and are produced at the UPM Biorefinery in Lappeenranta, Finland.


When replacing fossil fuels UPM BioVerno fuels reduce greenhouse gas and tailpipe emissions in traffic and heavy-duty transport. Our advanced biofuels do not compete for raw materials or land used in food production or cause additional felling of trees. Drop-in UPM BioVerno diesel suits all diesel engines and UPM BioVerno naphtha is an  excellent biocomponent for gasoline.

UPM BioVerno naphtha may also be used to replace fossil raw materials in plastics and other chemical industry products. 

 

Over 80% less greenhouse gas emissions than fossil diesel

Lower tailpipe emissions on the road compared to fossil diesel

Wood-based UPM BioVerno fuels replace fossil fuels used in traffic

Crude tall oil as a raw material

Crude tall oil is a natural wood extract of mainly softwood origin. This renewable raw material comes from sustainably managed forests - extracted as a residue when separating wood fibre for pulp production.

A substantial part of the renewable raw material processed in Lappeenranta comes from UPM pulp mills in Finland, such as the neighbouring UPM Kaukas mill. The use of crude tall oil in biofuel production does not increase wood usage.
