Neste Oil continues to protect its innovations and patents

Neste Oil Corporation has filed a new patent infringement action against
Dynamic Fuels, LLC, Syntroleum Corporation, and Tyson Foods, Inc. in the US
District Court for the District of Delaware. This follows a patent
infringement action filed by Neste Oil earlier this year against the same
defendants concerning infringement of a Neste Oil product patent. The current
action relates to infringement of a Neste Oil patent relating to the
production process used to produce renewable diesel at Dynamic Fuels' plant in
Geismar, Louisiana.

"Neste Oil has protected its proprietary NExBTL technology with a number of
patents. We will actively defend this technology, which is very important for
the Group's business, worldwide," says Matti Hautakangas, Neste Oil's General
Counsel.

Neste Oil is the world's leading producer of premium-quality renewable diesel
and has approx. 2 million t/a of NExBTL renewable diesel capacity at sites in
Singapore, the Netherlands, and Finland.
