The basis of Preem's ecolabelled green diesel. Every year we supply 100 million liters.
Processed by our customers into adhesives, ink, tape, paint and road markings - among many other things.
We supply industries with green heating oil for their heating requirements and other uses.
Processed by our customers into products for the perfume industry.
Our own residual product is turned into district heating in Piteå.
We invest in people to develop the future
Our vision is to extract renewable products for tomorrow's society from sustainable forestry. From raw tall oil – a residual product from paper mills –we extract primarily tall diesel, which is a biofuel with low carbon dioxide emissions and low energy consumption during its production and life cycle. SunPine was founded in 2006 and is owned by Sveaskog, Södra skogsägarna, Preem, KIRAM and Lawter. This dream team, which represents the entire production chain from concept to raw material and finished product, means SunPine has a bright future to look forward to. Today we produce primarily tall diesel and bio oil, and in 2015 we will extract rosin for delivery to Lawter.

"At Preem we call it From tree to tank, because the main raw material in our biofuel is tall oil from pine trees - so you could say that trees are our oil well."
"We wanted to make things simpler for our customers in various ways - offering ecolabelled diesel, for example, makes it's easy to choose a green product."
