Finnish oil refiner and marketer Neste Oil Corporation announced it has developed a biodiesel manufacturing process whose output solves many of biodiesel's traditional problems. Called "next generation biomass to liquid" or NExBTL, the resulting biodiesel can not only be made from animal fat or vegetable matter, but is more consistent in quality compared to current biodiesel manufactured in the EU, It is also more cold temperature and cold tolerant and has negligible exhaust emissions. The company is currently working with domestic automakers to test the new biodiesel for production over the next few years.
