Conversion of Preem’s refinery to renewable diesel begins

October 26, 2020 |

In Sweden, conversion of Preem’s refinery in Lysekil has begun. In the latest update to the refinery’s environmental permit, Preem will apply to establish the capacity for the large-scale production of renewable fuels at the refinery, which is estimated to reduce climate emissions by up to 1.7 million tons annually.

In an initial phase, Preem plans to carry out a redevelopment of the existing Synsat plant, which today produces environmental class 1 diesel. The redevelopment of the Synsat plant will increase Preem’s renewable diesel production by 650,000-950,000 cubic meters annually, which is as much as two to three times higher than today’s renewable production capacity at Preem’s refinery in Gothenburg.
