Eni looking to convert Mombasa refinery to HVO among other biofuel projects

December 21, 2020 |

In Kenya, the President met with the CEO of Eni to discuss the development of circular economy initiatives, including the recovery, regeneration and reuse of agricultural and food waste produced in the Country. The industrial transformation of waste would enhance its contribution to power generation, in partial replacement of fossil sources, making a decisive contribution to the country’s decarbonization process.

Specifically, the parties have identified strategic lines to implement a multi-year plan to incentivize separate collection of waste and agricultural residues, which are the ideal raw material for biofuel plants, able to produce biodiesel, bio-jet and bio-ethanol, leveraging the circular economy technologies developed by Eni. The plan also includes the study for the conversion of the Mombasa refinery into a bio-refinery. With these initiatives, Kenya will assume a leadership role in the decarbonization process of the African continent.
