Vision & Mission
The vision of St1 is to be the leading producer and seller of CO2 aware energy. Our goal is to develop and commercialize functional and environmentally sustainable solutions and to deliver these solutions in a profitable way.
Each solution must be:
- technically ready for use today
- ecologically and ethically sustainable
- logistically feasible
The mission of St1 Biofuels is to replace fossil fuels in a competitive and sustainable way by producing bioethanol cost-efficiently from waste and residues.
Domestic biofuel production from waste and residues results in lower CO2- emissions and reduced dependence on fossil fuel imports. St1 Biofuels only uses feedstocks that are outside the food chain and will not cause any direct or indirect land use changes.
This is St1 Biofuels Oy
St1 Biofuels Oy was established in 2006 as a subsidiary of the Nordic energy company, St1 Nordic Oy, with a goal of creating a sustainable bioethanol production concept that could be utilized widely. St1 Biofuels is pioneer in waste-based bioethanol production with several plants built.
The expertise of St1 Biofuels lies within biochemical processes, technology development, engineering, and project delivery. The core idea is to replace fossil fuels in a profitable and sustainable way.
St1 Biofuels produces bioethanol for transportation from waste and process residues. Using waste as feedstock offers a concrete way to reduce harmful fossil emissions in traffic and to provide new methods for waste management.
Our ongoing research and development projects increase the capacity of bioethanol production as new feedstock and plant technologies become available.
