Very little is known about oil refineries, what they do and how they do it. Truth is, very little is known about this remarkable substance we call oil – even by people who work with it daily. This section is designed to provide some insight – and hopefully inspiration – to students, educators and journalists who want to explore the oil business from a variety of perspectives. The stories are of general, technical and environmental interest. Each one includes contact details to Nynas personnel who can provide you with further information. Come back soon as we'll be adding more 'stories' on a regular basis.
Although Nynas was founded in Sweden by two Swedish engineers, the initial seeds were sown in America. For a brief summary, view the Nynas History.
