Oleofuels 2016

Date: 21st June 2016 - 22nd June 2016 Location: Liverpool - UK

Oleofuels 2016 focus: Production & Trading Strategies due to Policy Instability

Oleofuels 2016 is the progression of ACI’s highly successful European Biodiesel series of events which ran from 2008 – 2013. The change of name reflects the fact that the event will now cover all fuels made from oils & fats including biodiesel, HVO & bio jet as well as take a more global view which is key especially when it comes to certain feedstocks.

The two day conference will bring together the leading executives and experts from across the entire value chain for two days of informative presentations, interactive discussion & excellent networking opportunities.

Attending Oleofuels 2016 is also a unique opportunity to participate in the pre-event site visit. During the afternoon of Monday 20th June 2016, a limited number of conference attendees will be able to attend a site visit to Refuel Energy’s plant in Liverpool.
