Oleofuels Online Series

Date: 23rd September 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

It probably seems like a lifetime since you were last able to meet with your peers and have face-to-face discussions and network in-depth, it certainly does to us at ACI. It has been a great loss not being able meet and spend time with likeminded, dedicated professionals who can bring fresh perspectives on existing challenges and open up avenues for new opportunities. Reconnect with old industry friends and catch up on each other’s latest achievements in the field.

ACI has been far from idle in this time of the ’Great Lockdowns’. We are quite sure that many of you will have experienced various types of on-line events both before and during this year, we at ACI certainly have. Our experience has not been that great, we always found them only pale reflection of the ‘live’ event.

This will not be a ‘webinar’ with hidden attendees, the set up will be designed to allow all to participate in the discussions and meet as many other attendees as is possible. We truly believe this will be an online meeting unlike any other you have attended.

Besides his native Portuguese, André speaks fluent English and Spanish, as well as some French.

Thursday 24th June, 3pm-5pm CET (2pm – 4pm GMT)

Join up to 500 targeted delegates online for two hours – including Biodiesel producers, HVO/HEFA producers, Downstream oil companies/HVO producers Researchers, Process technology providers, Catalyst companies, Fuel Traders/Brokers, Consultants, Crop science/feedstock companies/plantation – all of this on a platform that makes networking as close to in-person interaction as it can feasibly be.

This 2-hour online networking event will comprise of a presentation by Eerika Vuorio, Product Researcher at Neste, followed by face-to-face Q&A and free networking time.

The title of Eerikas presentation: Vehicle CO2 regulation in the EU does not recognize benefits of renewable and advanced fuels – How could this be fixed

CO2 regulation of vehicles measures actual CO2 content from a tailpipe during a test run and does not recognize if the CO2 originates from fossil or renewable fuel. On the other hand the CO2 emissions of electric cars are zero regardless how the electricity is produced. Therefore the vehicle regulation recognizes only “tank-to-wheels” emissions, while fuel directives RED II and FQD already recognize “well-to-wheels” approach and use a principle that CO2 emission of renewable fuel’s final combustion is zero.

The first emission reduction in passenger car regulation (130 gCO2/km) was achievable with optimization of existing driveline, aerodynamics and other areas. From 2020 forward the limit has been 95 gCO2/km, from 2025 forward 81 gCO2/km and from 2030 forward 59 gCO2/km. These reductions force electrification as the only solution since renewable fuels are not accepted as tools for reducing cars’ CO2 emissions. This emission reduction is a difficult task also for vehicle manufacturers (OEMs), since they are facing significant penalties if the fleet target cannot be reached.

As one solution to enable renewable fuels as an emission reduction tool also for the vehicle industry, Neste has proposed a crediting system. The system would allow car manufacturers to finance additional renewable fuel production and utilize the achieved emission reduction in their fleet targets. The system would prevent double counting and provide a stronger value chain enabling even greater CO2 emission reduction.

N.B. This will not be a ‘webinar’ with hidden attendees, the set up will be designed to allow all to participate in the discussions and meet as many other attendees as possible.

Presentation Content:

2. Hydrotreated Vegetable Oils (HVO) also referred to as Hydro processed Esters and Fatty Acids (HEFA) are alternative renewable fuels to biodiesel. They are straight chain paraffinic hydrocarbons, free of oxygen and with a high cetane number. These fuels are produced via hydrotreatment of a wide variety of feedstock such as vegetable oils, used cooking oils (UCO), animal fats and fatty acids. The apparent versatility of feedstock origin and quality is evidently an advantage but at the same time, it introduces some challenges in the pretreatment process prior to hydrotreatment. Pretreated feedstock needs to meet very strict specifications, not exceeding a few parts per million, for phosphorus, total metals, chlorine and other contaminants. Reaching these strict specs is particularly difficult for lower quality feedstock such as certain animal fats and side streams such as acid oils, distillates and distillation pitches. In this presentation, a number of effective pretreatment processes for various HVO/HEFA feedstock will be discussed.

Thursday 25th February 3pm-5pm CET

Waste to Energy Markets: Opportunities, Challenges & How to Manage the Risks on Sourcing & Trading of Waste-Based Feedstocks

Bio-Oils is an independent business group created in 2005 to develop projects in the biofuels area, born with the strategic objective of becoming a relevant agent within the Spanish and European biodiesel market.

After 4 years working as Managing Director of BionetEuropa, one of the Spanish main players on UCOME industry, Javier started the operation in Spain for Petrotec on March 2012. One year later, Petrotec Spain reached a market share of 35% of the total UCOME (Used Cooking Oil Methyl Ester) production. Javier was responsible for all the Spanish activities and targeted new sourcing markets in Latin America.

The European Biodiesel Board (EBB) is a Brussels-based non-profit organisation established in 1997. We bring together producers of biodiesel (FAME and HVO) in Europe, gathering 34 members across 21 Member-States representing 75% of European biodiesel output. We represent biodiesel producers using all feedstocks: food/feed crops, waste, residues, and other innovative biogenic materials. Biodiesel is used primarily as a substitute for fossil fuels in transport and is key to decreasing EU transport emissions and dependence on imported diesel. The EBB promotes European biodiesel use and is committed to international standards for sustainability in GHG emissions and feedstock supply.

Feedstock production also forms part of a value chain generating valuable co-products such as food, feed, biochemicals and biopolymers. European policies have historically encouraged biodiesel production to develop the protein and energy independence of the EU, while generating income for EU farmers. Thanks to these policies, the EU is the largest global biodiesel producer and market. With a comprehensive understanding of the regulatory process and its impact on our industry, the EBB is constantly developing and promoting improved, greener technology while working with EU policymakers to ensure European regulation is as appropriate and effective as possible. The EBB strongly supports the Increased ambitions of the European Green Deal, as well as the EU 2030 emissions reduction targets and the aim of achieving a climate-neutral continent by 2050. The EBB is proud to advance these goals by promoting sustainable #BiodieselFitForEU.
