Neste, the world’s leading producer of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel produced from waste and residue raw materials, has acquired 100% of the Dutch Count Companies BV’s Count Terminal Rotterdam BV and its supporting entities, part of the First Dutch Group of Peter Goedvolk. The transaction was closed on 7 May 2020.
Count Terminal Rotterdam stores, refines and blends renewable waste and residue-based raw materials in the Rotterdam harbour area. Count Terminal Rotterdam will be the first terminal asset Neste owns for renewable feedstock aggregation, thus enabling Neste to further develop its raw material logistics for the future. The transaction will also enhance Neste’s competitiveness in the global renewable waste and residue raw material market.
Neste has been active in the Netherlands since 2011 when the Rotterdam refinery for renewable products started its operations. The Rotterdam refinery, together with the company’s Singapore refinery, are the world’s largest renewable diesel refineries.
Neste’s Sluiskil plant is responsible for the storage and pre-treatment of renewable raw materials, and Neste Demeter B.V. delivers raw materials to the company’s renewable diesel refinery. Last year Neste opened a new office in Hoofddorp, in greater Amsterdam which serves as the global hub for the growing Renewable Aviation business.
