On March 19, 2018, Neste, a member of the Biobased and Renewable Products Advocacy Group (BRAG®), announced the delivery of its first batch of 100 percent renewable propane to SHV Energy.  Neste is operating the world’s first large-scale renewable production facility in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.  The new facility, that primarily produces Neste MY Renewable Diesel, purifies and separates renewable propane from the sidestream gases.  The refinery is capable of producing 40,000 tonnes of propane per year.  The renewable propane can be used in a variety of existing applications, including transport, commercial heating, and retail leisure cylinders, without modifications to existing gas applications technology.  SHV Energy will market the propane as BioLPG and sell it to customers across Europe.
