ACI’s Oleofuels 2020 is scheduled to take place on 24 – 25 June, in Marseilles. We remain hopeful it will be possible to convene on these dates and will be monitoring the situation closely, heeding the latest advice of relevant authorities the very best we can to ensure we protect the health and safety of our attendees and provide the highest quality event possible. We will call and email all registered attendees in case of any changes. If you have any questions please contact one of the event team on the details tab below.
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 13th edition of a very successful series, Oleofuels 2020 taking place on 24 – 25 June in Marseilles, France will bring together senior representatives from the biodiesel, renewable diesel and HVO industries to discuss the latest market advancements, developments & business opportunities.

LA MÈDE, is one of the largest biorefineries in Europe
Identified by the International Energy Agency (IEA) as a way of mitigating global warming, biofuels mesh perfectly with our strategy. We have been producing biofuels for more than 20 years and are today the leading distributer in Europe.
Our La Mède biorefinery, the first world-class facility of its type in France and one of the largest in Europe, aims to meet the growing demand for biofuels.
Operational as from 2019, it has a capacity of 500,000 tonnes of HVO-type1 biodiesel per year. The HVO technology that we have selected is French, developed by IFP Énergies nouvelles and marketed by its affiliate Axens. It produces a sustainable and high-quality biofuel, similar in nature to fossil fuels and therefore has no adverse effect on engines.
The biorefinery was designed to produce biofuels from various types of oils, including vegetable oils certified sustainable according to E.U. criteria as well as used oils, residual oils and animal fats. La Mède’s feedstock will be made up of 60% to 70% crude vegetable oils (rapeseed, sunflower, soybean, oil palm, corn or new plants such as carinata) and 30% to 40% treated waste (animal fats, cooking oil, residues, etc.). Total has pledged to process no more than 300,000 tonnes of palm oil per year — less than 50% of the total volume of raw materials needed — and at least 50,000 tonnes of French-grown rapeseed, creating another market for domestic agriculture.
All the oils processed will be certified sustainable to European Union standards. In addition, as part of its palm oil procurement process, Total is taking an extra step by introducing strengthened control of sustainability and respect for human rights.
The La Mède biorefinery project is coupled with a plan for continuous improvement of the facility’s energy efficiency, with the aim of reducing energy consumption by 8% by 2020.
