10.15 Departure from hotel Elite Park Avenue, Kungsportsavenyn 36-38, Gothenburg

  • St1 refinery

Our first stop will be St1 refinery in Gothenburg. St1 is a pioneer in advanced biofuel production of ethanol from different waste materials with several plants built in Finland and Sweden. Etanolix® plants producing ethanol from food industry waste and Cellunolix® plant pro­ducing cellulosic ethanol from sawdust. Earlier this spring, St1 and the forest company SCA included a partnership for a large-scale production of renewable fuel from tall oil. Production is scheduled to take place at St1’s refinery in Gothenburg with a planned start-up in 2021.

  • Södra Cell Värö biorefinery

The second stop will be Södra Cell Värö biorefinery, which is the biggest sawmill and the most modern pulp mill in Sweden. Södra has a broad portfolio of biofuel projects and investments, from biomethanol plant under construction to demonstration of large-scale biofuels production with Statkraft in Norway and commercial operation at SunPine with tall diesel production and new investment in a second plant.

The pre-conference study visits are free and for conference delegates only. Registration is required. Please wear covering clothing and flat shoes (no high heels).
