Neste Jacobs bags tall oil rosin facility contract in Pitea, Sweden

PORVOO, FINLAND: Neste Jacobs, technology, engineering and project management company, and SunPine, producing biochemicals and feedstock for second-generation renewable fuels, have signed an agreement for Neste Jacobs to perform EPCM services to construct a Tall Oil Rosin production facility in Pitea, Sweden. The facility is expected to be operational in the second half of year 2015 and will deliver rosin to Lawter facility in Kallo, Belgium.

At the time the new rosin plant is up and running, SunPine will be producing three different products: Raw tall diesel - a feedstock used in the production of renewable diesel, rosin - a raw material used in the production of derivatives, including printing ink and adhesives, and tall oil pitch - an energy product used in the paper industry.

“We are proud to serve SunPine in their new rosin plant investment, since we are very aware of the value of the project for SunPine both from the employment and product portfolio point of view. Expertise in Tall Oil process design is part of our core competences and the project now awarded to us is a great add-on to reach our target of being the preferred solution provider for biorefining industries,” Jarmo Suominen, Managing Director, Neste Jacobs.
