Renewable UPM BioVerno naphtha is an ideal biocomponent for gasoline and for replacing fossil feedstock. It is produced at the UPM Lappeenranta Biorefinery in Finland. The raw material is crude tall oil, a residue of pulp production.
UPM BioVerno fuels are advanced biofuels. Their production does not compete with the production of food in land-use or raw materials. Unlike first generation biofuels, UPM BioVerno fuels have no blending limit and distributors are able to use it at 100%.
As the raw material for UPM BioVerno naphtha is a residue, its production does not cause additional felling of trees.
