How do we go Beyond fossils? - UPM BioVerno
UPM turns wood-based biomass and production residues into sustainable solutions suitable across industries. UPM BioVerno is a drop-in diesel, a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. With cleaner traffic, achieved by lower tailpipe and greenhouse gas emissions, this is what fuels the future.
Growing Fuel Potential
Jaakko Nousiainen, UPM Biofuels, shares his time between the forest, the control rooms and the lab where he oversees the production of the biofuel. The Nordic Bioeconomy Programme has released 15 action points to boost sustainable bioeconomy. Check out Jaakko’s biofuel story – one of the most visible sustainable bioeconomy solution in Nordic & Baltic states. Courtesy of Nordiska Ministerrådet and Green Exchange.
Renewable by Design
Choosing a package can make a difference – Elopak, Dow and UPM Biofuels joint forces. Every day millions of people pick paperboard-based cartons in their shopping carts in grocery stores around the world. Choosing a package can make a difference.

UPM Biofuels – Highlights of the past few years
We’ve been chasing our dreams since 2006. Take a look at our journey and some of the greatest moments from these years!
UPM Lappeenranta Biorefinery - Making industrial history on the shore of Lake Saimaa
See how the UPM Kaukas integrated mill site has been a centre of wood-based innovations since 1892.
UPM BioVerno diesel story – produced by European Commission
European Commission recognised UPM Biofuels as the winner of the EU Sustainable Energy Europe Awards 2014 in the “Travelling” category for its crude tall oil based renewable UPM BioVerno diesel. They also filmed the project in Finland! UPM BioVerno was recognised for the innovative approach in using the residue of UPM’s own pulp production, crude tall oil, as a new raw material for the production of advanced biofuels to lower greenhouse gas emissions.
The sustainable fuel growing on trees
Can the world's first marine biofuel, developed in eastern Finland from wood by UPM Biofuels, reduce the carbon emissions of shipping?
Fact and fable about biofuels - Algae in the fuel tank?
It is a complete myth that UPM BioVerno diesel encourages the growth of algae in a fuel tank. So how does UPM BioVerno differ from first generation biodiesel?
Fact and fable about biofuels - Are any trees felled to make UPM BioVerno?
None. Renewable UPM BioVerno diesel is made from tall oil, a residue of pulp production. How does this affect the use of wood?
Fact and fable about biofuels - Does renewable diesel damage engine gaskets?
UPM BioVerno diesel is chemically similar to conventional diesel fuel and causes no harm to engine gaskets.
