The Finnish company Neste Oyi is the world's largest producer of renewable diesel. For the expansion of its biodiesel production in Singapore, the company placed an order with Busch Singapore about the supply of two vacuum systems for a pre-treatment unit (PTU). 

For some feedstocks, such as waste cooking oils, brown greases, or crude corn oils, pretreatment is necessary to reduce the high free fatty acid content. Only then is it possible to use these oils and fats for biodiesel production. Vacuum is used in this pre-treatment process mainly to remove moisture. 

In 2017, Busch Singapore had already supplied a vacuum system for the pre-treatment process of the biodiesel plant at Neste in Singapore, which is one of the largest in the world.
