Preem selects HydroFlex for renewable fuels plant with potential to save 2.5M tons CO2

March 15, 2020 |

In Sweden, Preem has chosen Haldor Topsoe’s HydroFlex renewable fuel technology to produce clean renewable diesel and jet fuel at their Gothenburg refinery in Sweden. The 16,000 barrels-per-day unit will have a yearly production capacity of approximately one million cubic meters of fuels which corresponds to about 25% of Sweden’s estimated consumption of renewable fuels in 2030.

This volume of renewable fuel can reduce emissions from cars and planes by 2.5 million tons CO2 every year.

The new plant is scheduled to be put on-stream in 2024 and will be completely dedicated to producing renewable fuels from tall oil, tallow, and other renewable feedstocks.

Preem was one of the first transportation fuel companies to begin the transformation towards renewable fuels. For more than a decade, the company has collaborated with Topsoe to innovate the field.

As a result of Preem choosing the HydroFlex technology with its capacity to produce renewable jet fuel, Preem has signed a letter of intent with the airline SAS to bring this fuel to the Nordic markets.

The project is based on HydroFlex, a Topsoe technology that produces renewable fuels, such as gasoline, diesel, and sustainable aviation fuel, from all renewable feedstocks. Topsoe will license and supply basic engineering, proprietary equipment, catalysts, and technical services.
