Cepsa and Bio-Oils, a subsidiary of Apical, are beginning construction of the largest second-generation biofuels plant in southern Europe.
This facility, which will flexibly produce 500,000 tonnes of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel (hydrogenated vegetable oil or HVO) annually, will allow the joint venture formed by both companies to double its current production capacity.
The new 2G biofuels plant, along with the existing facilities operated by Cepsa and Bio-Oils in Huelva, Spain, will form the second largest renewable fuel complex in Europe, with a total production capacity of 1 million tons per annum.
The new facility is expected to be operational in 2026 and will be built in Palos de la Frontera (Huelva), next to La Rábida Energy Park.
Its development involves a €1.2 billion investment and the creation of 2,000 direct and indirect jobs during the construction and operation phases.
