Cepsa outlines plans for new biofuels plant
The new plant will produce both renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and will create up to 1,600 jobs during its construction phase.
The biofuels will be made from organic waste, such as used cooking oils, agricultural waste and other waste. These fuels can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 90% compared to traditional fuels.
Cepsa is seeking to lead the manufacture of biofuels in Spain and Portugal, with an annual production of 2.5 million tonnes, of which 800,000 tonnes will be SAF.
As part of its 2030 strategy, Positive Motion, Cepsa is promoting the development of an ecosystem focused on accelerating its decarbonisation and that of its customers.
