ACI’s Oleofuels 2022 will take place on the 18th and 19th May 2022, in Marseille, France.
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 2022 will bring together senior representatives from the biodiesel, renewable diesel and HVO industries to discuss the latest market advancements, developments & business opportunities.
Speakers Confirmed Include:
During the afternoon of Tuesday 17th May 2022 a limited number of conference attendees will receive a unique opportunity to visit TOTAL’s Biorefinery in la Mede.
There is no extra charge to attend the site visit, but spaces are limited and allocated on a first come-first served basis. You can register your attendance when booking for the conference.

IMERYS Performance Minerals is the largest global supplier of engineered mineral products for filtration. Derived from diatomite and perlite, natural raw materials possessing unusually light density, chemical inertness, high surface area and intricate structure, IMERYS filter aids have been used for the filtration of vegetable oils, oleochemicals and biodiesel for decades.
IMERYS Performance Minerals has developed a range of speciality adsorbents specific for oleofuels industry. CynerSorb® is a fully-functioning soap/phospholipid and trace metal adsorbent, but, unlike silica gel or magnesium silicate adsorbents, CynerSorb®, has excellent filtration performance characteristics. The surface chemistry of CynerSorb® means that all the adsorbent sites are easily available – so no need for extended hydration or mixing times – thus giving optimal adsorption at lower dosing rates. The result is an adsorbent that can increase filter run lengths, with lower yield losses, lower refining costs and less spent cake production.
CynerSorb® can also be used as a pre-treatment solution to allow usage of multiple or lower quality feedstocks.
Founded in 2010 in France, GREENMOT is a test center supported by a highly specialised engineering team to carry out tests on all types of motorized vehicles, from passenger cars to special military machines. Our customers are OEM, Tier1|2|3 suppliers, O&G companies, aerospace suppliers among others.
The company has, since the beginning, designed its own cells and test tools and operate now three, to be four, climate test cells up to 20m long . As a partner to R&D teams and design offices, GREENMOT makes full use of these innovative cells and its expertise to help customers face challenges such as powertrain hybridization, product optimization, emissions reduction, fuel/hvo/biofuel consumption minimization.
Thanks to our efficient methodologies and our climatic cells (-46°C | +55°C), we are able to reproduce operating vehicle conditions and offer a perfectly fitted under-control environment. This specific set environment allows very high repeatability of measurements, <0.1% on vehicle fuel consumption and <10% on regulated emissions.
The repeatability is guaranteed by direct mechanical connection (eliminating tire/roller dispersion) and by the use of our GREENMOT robot driver (eliminating human driver dispersion). Its leads to development productivity savings that makes engineers able to easily identify and quantify the impact of any modification on comparative test results of lubricants, oils or fuels.
In conclusion, our tools, coupled with post-processing data analysis, will be a relevant support for oil/fuel performance differentiation. The results provided, which are fully comparable between them, will allow you to choose the innovative solution best suited to your market and your product strategy.

At the event we strive not only to bring you to the same location at the same time as your customers/suppliers/peers, we strive to ensure you meet face-to-face with each and every one of your target contacts and to provide you with the time you need to have multiple unhurried conversations with them and build a lasting business relationship:
• A pre-event informal introduction the evening before the conference
• A minimum of five hours’ networking built into the two day conference agenda
• A networking grid which enables you to make your target contacts aware you are looking for them
• The option to join either social drinks or dinner during the evening of Day One
• ACI’s on-site team will assist you in locating your hard-to-find target contacts & make face-to-face introductions
Of course, if there is anybody you are unable to meet over the two days, ACI’s event team will do their best to initiate contact after the event.
ACI is doing everything to ensure that all its events go ahead as advertised, returning to the much-missed and valuable face-to-face interaction as soon as possible. In order to ensure the events are delivered as safely as possible, venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in line with the relevant local and regulations and guidelines.
These have been exceptionally challenging times with very fast-moving updates. As we get closer to an event we look at each one individually, paying careful heed to local regulations, but without ignoring the international situation. Whatever happens, ACI will safeguard the investments that attendees have made by either automatically moving it to the new dates of the event or a full credit will be provided for use when booking a future ACI event.
