Topsoe to supply technology for SAF and renewable diesel plant

news item image
Topsoe has signed an agreement with Cepsa to provide its HydroFlex™ technology for the production of SAF and renewable diesel.
This will be carried out at Cepsa’s and Bio-Oils’ new second-generation biofuels plant in Palos de la Frontera, Spain.
Elena Scaltritti, chief commercial officer at Topsoe, said: “We are excited to have been selected as the technology provider for this important project. The demand for SAF and renewable diesel is there, but supply is still lagging behind.
“Renewable fuels will be absolutely critical to support the energy transition – in particular in sectors such as long-distance transportation that are difficult to electrify. Cepsa delivers a meaningful contribution to decarbonizing the transportation sector, and we’re proud to be working with them.”
The plant, which began construction in February 2024, is expected to flexibly produce 500,000 tonnes of SAF and renewable diesel annually.
With this new plant Cepsa and Bio-Oils will be doubling their total renewable fuels production capacity to 1 million tons per year and thereby creating one of the largest renewable fuel complexes in Southern Europe.
José Manuel Martínez, director of technology, projects, and services at Cepsa, said:
“This new 2G plant is central to our Positive Motion strategy and will set the European benchmark in the field of green molecules, directly supporting the rapid decarbonization of sectors that cannot run on electrons, like aviation. The new facility will emit 75% less CO2 than a traditional biofuel plant and is designed to achieve net zero emissions in the medium term. In Topsoe we have identified an outstanding partner, with proven technology and a track record of successfully delivering on its promises. We look forward to progressing construction to significantly increase production of this key renewable fuel.”
