Hear Johanna describe Preem’s transitional journey: Advancing towards climate-neutrality by 2035.

The Swedish Bioenergy Association (Svebio) is organizing the 9th Advanced Biofuels Conference (ABC 2023) which provides you with the latest on renewable transportation fuels, novel technologies and policy developments. Meet the leading players and experts from around the world, on-site or online.

The demand for advanced biofuels for all modes of transport outpaces production capacity. New greenfield plants in various stages of planning and construction will add industrial-scale capacity as they come online. So too will the conversion and retrofitting of existing fossil assets, if investments and recent announcements made by both global oil and gas supermajors as well as national– and independent players is anything to go by – Preem, Sweden’s largest transportation fuel producer, distributor and retailer (Study Tour option 2), a case in point.
On paper, the rationale for investing in industrial-scale co-processing capability and/or advanced biofuel production capacity at an existing oil refinery would seem self-evident. In practice, there are of course numerous considerations as Johanna Rindebäck, Development Engineer, New opportunities at Preem will discuss.
Preem operates two refineries, Preemraff Lysekil and Preemraff Gothenburg respectively, both of which are undergoing significant retrofits and upgrades to produce advanced biofuels. These include renewable diesel (aka HVO), renewable gasoline, and possibly sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), and renewable marine fuel from various feedstock including co-processed pyrolysis oil from biomass, and end-of-life tyres(ELT). With a current capacity of 300 000 tonnes and additional one million tonne expansion planned, Preemraff Gothenburg produces renewable diesel using feedstock such as animal fats, used cooking oil (UCO), and refined crude tall oil (CTO) – the latter is a by-product of the pulp industry.

Hear Johanna describe Preem’s transitional journey: Advancing towards climate-neutrality by 2035.
