Renewable traffic fuels

UPM BioVerno diesel and naphtha show the way.


Five reasons why UPM BioVerno is your best fuel for transport

Drop-in fuel fully compatible with all diesel engines
Lower tailpipe emissions on the road
About 80% less greenhouse gas emissions than fossil diesel
Physical properties and quality identical to fossil equivalent
Wood-based UPM BioVerno fuels reduce the use of fossil fuels

UPM BioVerno: a renewable fuel from Finland

UPM BioVerno is a fuel made from crude tall oil extracted in the pulp production process. Our biofuels were developed by UPM in Finland and are now produced at the UPM Biorefinery in Lappeenranta. UPM BioVerno fuels reduce greenhouse gas and tailpipe emissions, and do not compete for raw materials used in food production.


How do we go Beyond fossils? - UPM BioVerno


Local products offer sustainable alternatives


Sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels

UPM BioVerno diesel and naphtha are sustainable alternatives to fossil fuels. They are the two main products of the Lappeenranta Biorefinery.

UPM BioVerno diesel works well in all diesel engines and UPM BioVerno naphtha is an excellent biocomponent in gasoline. Naphtha may also be used to replace fossil raw materials in plastics and other chemical industry products.


New opportunities from by-products

The by-products of the UPM Lappeenranta Biorefinery, turpentine and pitch, are also creating entirely new opportunities for the chemical industry. They are ideal certified substitutes for fossil raw materials.

UPM's renewable turpentine, for example, is suitable for manufacturing bio-based fragrances in the perfume industry, and pitch can be used for generating bioenergy and in manufacturing products such as bitumen, printing inks or road marking paints.
