Supporting the sustainable transition

Making our world go round – solutions for the transition to a sustainable society.

A company doesn’t last for close to 100 years without being able to offer something unique. Nynas has the products that society needs and the know-how to supply highly functional, cost-effective and sustainable solutions.

As countries develop their economies, Nynas is there to support them, contributing to key infrastructure and clean energy applications that are vital for society.

Take wind turbines, for example. They are crucial for a rapidly growing market segment that generates renewable energy. Our naphthenic specialty products keep wind turbines lubricated to ensure they spin in a friction-free manner. Nynas transformer liquids are also used to insulate and cool the transformers in the transmission grids to which wind farms and other energy sources are connected.

Bitumen is another crucial ingredient in the world’s infrastructure. With the growth of infrastructure projects and need for maintenance, there is high demand for Nynas bitumen products, particularly in asphalt applications. Our bitumen is used to build and maintain roads, bridges and airport runways and, because it is 100 per cent reusable, it contributes to the circular economy.

Increasing circularity

As we continue to develop for the future, our focus – and our responsibility – is to reinforce our role as a key player in the transition to a more sustainable society. We are achieving this by reducing our own impact on the environment and by continuing to develop sustainable products and solutions that offer our customers longer life and greater circularity.

Sustainability runs throughout our value chain from how we use hydrocarbons in a sustainable way to make our products, through an efficient supply chain, logistics and product usage.

Emission reductions

We refine and upgrade hydrocarbon feedstock, transforming it into products of which many do not emit greenhouse gas emission in their use phase. Nynas’ products increase the lifetime of customers’ applications, and supports reduction of environmental impact. With close proximity to our customers, we are able to shorten lead times and the distances that our goods must travel.

Nynas is committed to lowering its own environmental impact and our aim is to become climateneutral by 2050*. We will monitor all of our operational emissions based on the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.

Our vision for Nynas is to build on our role as the industry’s innovation leader and drive the transition to a sustainable society. As an organisation, Nynas will be focused, profitable and sustainable in every way.

* In accordance with the EU aim to have an economy with net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.

A few examples

Here are a few examples of how our products can contribute to sustainable development, for example how they can be recycled and consume less energy when used. In this way we also support our customers' ambitions, so that they in turn can satisfy their customers' demands.
