Preem chooses Haldor Topsoe’s HydroFlex™ for Gothenburg biorefinery

In Sweden, Preem has chosen Haldor Topsoe’s HydroFlex renewable fuel technology to produce clean renewable diesel and jet fuel at their Gothenburg refinery in Sweden.

The 16,000 barrels-per-day unit will have a yearly production capacity of approximately one million cubic meters of fuels which corresponds to about 25% of Sweden’s estimated consumption of renewable fuels in 2030. This volume of renewable fuel can reduce emissions from cars and planes by 2.5 million tons CO2 every year.

The new plant is scheduled to be put on-stream in 2024 and will be completely dedicated to producing renewable fuels from tall oil, tallow, and other renewable feedstocks.
