Learn more about the world's first biorefinery of a kind

UPM has invested EUR 179 million in the world’s first biorefinery producing wood-based renewable diesel and naphtha called UPM BioVerno. The UPM Lappeenranta Biorefinery produces UPM BioVerno diesel and naphtha from crude tall oil, a residue of UPM’s own pulp production.

The commercial production of UPM BioVerno diesel and naphtha started in January 2015 in Lappeenranta, Finland. The annual capacity is 120 million litres of advanced, renewable biofuels. The biorefinery is based on UPM’s own innovations and it employs 75 people directly and 150 people indirectly.
