Researchers at The University of Manchester have made a significant breakthrough in the development of synthetic pathways that will enable renewable biosynthesis of the gas propane. This research is part of a programme of work aimed at developing the next generation of biofuels.
Neste will be starting production of renewable propane at a new unit being built at the Rotterdam refinery. Production is expected to start by the end of 2016, with an agreement to supply 160,000 tonnes to SHV Energy over a four-year period.
