Finnish companies Neste and VTT have signed cooperation agreements aimed at strengthening expertise in the bio and circular economies as well as developing cleaner fuel solutions. The agreements relate to two separate research projects in Finland — the first to a testing facility being built by Neste in Kilpilahti, Porvoo, Finland and the second to a catalytic processes project at VTT’s Bioruukki pilot centre in Espoo, Finland. The agreements will allow Neste and VTT to use these research infrastructures in their future projects.
“Neste and VTT have long been partners, and the agreements will enable a more extensive research collaboration”, said Peter Vanacker, president and CEO of Neste.
“This partnership is very important to us, and an excellent example of how we are looking for concrete solutions to climate change and resource sufficiency with our partners. The cooperation between Neste and VTT brings up new opportunities to make the best possible use of the research infrastructures,” said Antti Vasara, VTT’s president and CEO.
