The Gratuate School would like to invite you to the second webinar in our webinar series. The purpose of these webinars is to explore the potential plant and algae industry in the Nordics by hearing about different companies and projects on the field presented by the experts working in them.

Senior Associate Aino-Maija Lakaniemi, D.Sc. (Tech.), from Neste Innovation will provide an introduction to Neste activities related to future renewable raw materials especially focusing on the potential use of algae as sustainable raw materials for fuels and chemicals.

Algae are one of the potential renewable and scalable future raw materials that Neste has been exploring and developing for over 15 years with the aim to expand the renewable raw material pool to support future growth of renewables production.
