Neste Renewable Isoalkane™ provides the means to decrease the environmental footprint of biochemical businesses and products, and an answer to consumer demand for high-quality sustainable solutions.

As the world’s leading supplier of renewable oils, we have the capacity to enable the chemical industry to provide their customers with chemicals and plastics produced in large scale from renewable raw materials.

Neste Renewable Isoalkane oil offers a sustainable, safe, and odorless alternative to traditional mineral oils, and is ideal for a wide range of chemical applications from paints and coatings to lubricants.

Neste Renewable Isoalkane – sustainable to the core

As with Neste’s other renewable products, Neste Renewable Isoalkane offers premium quality, and thanks to its renewable origin helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions, while being biodegradable in accordance with OECD 301.
