New success for Axens VeganÂ® technology for Repsol first advanced biofuels plant
Repsol has selected Axens VeganÂ® technology for its first production plant for advanced biofuels in Spain at its Cartagena refinery. This new plant will be capable of producing 250,000 TPA of of biodiesel, biojet, bionaphtha, and biopropane. Repsolâ€™s project outlines Axensâ€™ expertise in Hydrotreated Vegetable Oils (HVO) and its commitment to power sustainability in transport.
VeganÂ® technology is able to hydrotreat a wide range of lipids and to produce low-density and high cetane renewable diesel as well as renewable sulfur-free jet fuel. This renewable fuels technology allows producers to effectively address todayâ€™s environmental regulations and secure energy diversification with drop-in premium quality products.
The scope of Axensâ€™ work includes the supply of process books, catalysts & adsorbents, proprietary equipment, trainings and technical services.
â€śThis advanced biofuels plant is a step forward in Repsolâ€™s commitment to become a net zero carbon company in 2050. Repsol is promoting different technological options for sectors of transport where electrification is not a technically viable option. This adds to renewable hydrogen and synthetic fuels projects that provide new routes towards carbon neutrality in transportâ€ť, stated Repsol.
â€śAxens is excited to work with Repsol, providing VeganÂ® technology for this advanced biofuels plant in Cartagena. This award further strenghtens Axensâ€™ technology position for sustainable and renewable biofuels. Repsol will benefit from a notable know-how backed by 50 years of experience in middle distillates hydro-treatment and hydrocracking /hydro- isomerization along with support in technology, services and state-of-the-art catalysts developed, manufactured and provided by Axensâ€ť, said Patrick Sarrazin, Axensâ€™ Executive Vice-President, Process Licensing Global Business Unit.
