Petter Holland, Preem: "Preem renewable production – Priorities and plans for an exciting future"
We are pleased to present a number of distinguished experts at the Advanced Biofuels Conference 18-20 September in Gothenburg. They will give their view on how and why the industry is investing big in biofuels. Never before has the market been so vibrant, taking giant steps. The market is ready for takeoff!
Operating two refineries, Sweden’s largest oil refiner and fuels distributor Preem AB has a clear goal to produce 3 million m3 of renewable transportation fuels by 2030 while reducing the carbon footprint of its operations. A stakeholder in SunPine, the ISCC certified refiner is busy increasing its forest biomass feedstock base via several recently announced agreements and development initiatives in Scandinavia.
Preem, the leading Swedish refining company, has for many years developed and implemented renewable transportation fuels production capacity in their refineries. With the recently agreed CO2-reduction tariff system for Sweden we now have a firm basis for long-term investments in this area. This creates a large number of opportunities and challenges to further grow the domestic production of renewable transportation fuels through more efficient use of renewable residues and waste.
