Oleofuels 2023

Date: 14th June 2023 - 15th June 2023 Location: Seville - Spain

ACI’s is pleased to announce that the next edition of Oleofuels 2023 is due to take place between the 14th & 15th June 2023 in Seville, Spain.

The European HVO market has seen substantial growth over the last 5 years, with more and more oil majors, such as Neste, Total, ENI and dedicated fuels producers alike continuing to invest heavily in HVO production units. With the continued focus on reducing GHG and CO2 emissions both in Europe, and across the globe, the demand for more sustainable fuels has never been higher. However with increasing competition from Asia and the US, the need for sustainable feedstocks, increasing regulatory pressures, price fluctuation, the need for more investment in R&D and adaptation to new technologies shows that the industry is still facing some significant challenges.

Already on its 14th edition of a very successful series, on the 14th & 15th June 2023, Oleofuels 2023 will bring together senior representatives from the biodiesel, renewable diesel and HVO industries to discuss the latest market advancements, developments & business opportunities in Seville, Spain

EWABA is a Brussels-based association representing the interests of the European waste-based and advanced biofuels industry before EU institutions, national governments, industry, civil society and the media. We promote the inclusion of waste-based and advanced biofuels in the EU fuel mix as a sustainable means of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in EU transport. Our +45 members active in most EU Member States collect and use waste and advanced feedstocks listed in parts A and B of Annex IX of the Renewable Energy Directive (REDII) to produce sustainable biodiesel with the highest GHG savings (up to +90%) when compared with fossil fuels, thus enabling “near-term decarbonization” of the EU road and maritime transport sectors.


The European Biodiesel Board (EBB) is a non-profit organisation established in January 1997. It gathers close to 34 members across 21 Member-States, which represents 75% of the European output. The EBB aims to promote the use of biodiesel in the European Union and is committed to fulfil International standards for sustainability in GHG emissions and sustainable feedstock.
