Curbing climate change requires emission reductions in all essential emission sectors.
In Finland, the portion of emissions from traffic is significant. Finland has committed to halving traffic emissions by 2030 compared to the 2005 level.
Second-generation biofuels produced from sustainable raw materials are the most important means of reducing emissions from the current vehicle fleet.
At NordFuel, we are working on fighting climate change by preparing the construction of a modern biorefinery in Haapavesi, Northern Ostrobothnia. After completion, the biorefinery will produce bioethanol, biogas, and lignin from domestic raw materials, replacing imported fossil fuels.
