HVO PROJECT

An investment in the future of renewable fuels

To reach Sweden's climate goals, the share of renewable fuels needs to increase. Therefore, Preem wants to build Sweden's largest renewable diesel and biojet fuel production facility.

Preem has received an environmental permit to build a new plant for wholly renewable production in Gothenburg, a so-called Green Feed Unit (GFU).

The HVO project is the largest investment at the refinery since its establishment in the late 1960s. The new plant will have an annual production capacity of approximately 1 million cubic meters of fuel that can reduce emissions from cars and airplanes by 2.5 million tons of carbon dioxide each year*.

Our main effort to reduce carbon emissions is to increase the production of renewable fuels. The planned expansion of the refinery in Gothenburg is a major step towards the climate goals of both Preem and Sweden.

As early as 2035, we want to produce around five million cubic meters of renewable fuel, reducing transport emissions by approximately 12.5 million tonnes.

The Facts

In the central processing unit, Green Feed Unit (GFU), renewable raw materials will be converted into renewable diesel and biojet fuel. Furthermore, a facility for the pre-treatment and purification of the raw materials and facilities for hydrogen production is required.

In addition to these main processes, several existing systems need to be rebuilt and expanded.

*How we calculated

One cubic meter of crude oil corresponds to approximately 3 tons of fossil carbon dioxide.

By using renewable raw materials, such as rapeseed oil, tall oil, and animal fats, the fossil carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by between 65-95 percent.

When Preem produces 1 million cubic meters of renewable fuels with a raw material that results in approximately 85 percent lower fossil emissions, the fossil carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by 2.5 million tons.
1 000 000 x 3 x 0,85 = 2 500 000.
