Leading renewable diesel producer Neste has acquired BV’s Count Terminal Rotterdam from the First Dutch Group, Neste announced on 7 May.

“This acquisition supports our efforts to build a global renewable waste and residue raw material platform that can keep pace with the world’s growing demand for renewable products.

“Count Terminal Rotterdam and Neste Demeter have had a successful long-term collaboration at the site and the acquisition by Neste serves as a logical next step in deepening cooperation and in developing operations further,” Neste president and CEO Peter Vanacker said.

The Rotterdam facility stores, refines and blends renewable waste and residue-based raw materials and will be the first terminal for renewable feedstock aggregation owned by Finland-based Neste.

Netherlands-based First Dutch is an impact investor owned and led by Peter Goedvolk
