Oleofuels Conference 2022

The European HVO market has seen substantial growth over the last 5 years, with more and more oil majors and dedicated fuels producers alike continuing to invest heavily in HVO production units. With the continued focus on reducing GHG and CO2 emissions both in Europe, and across the globe, the demand for more sustainable fuels has never been higher. However with increasing competition from Asia and the US, the need for sustainable feedstocks, increasing regulatory pressures, price fluctuation, the need for more investment in R&D and adaptation to new technologies shows that the industry is still facing some significant challenges.

Oleofuels 2022 will bring together senior representatives from the biodiesel, renewable diesel and HVO industries to discuss the latest market advancements, developments & business opportunities.

Meet Clariant's experts from the Functional Minerals and the Biofuels & Derivatives businesses to learn more about our solutions for renewable fuel purification and our sunliquid® technology for the production of cellulosic ethanol, an advanced biofuel that can be used as a drop-in solution for fuel blending and offers further downstream application opportunities into sustainable aviation fuel and bio-based chemicals.

  • Tonsil RNF Series
    Whether producing fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs) for biodiesel or the hydrotreated vegetable oils (HVOs) and animal fats commonly referred to as renewable diesel: Effective contaminant removal is vital for smooth downstream conversion and high-quality results.The requirements of this removal differ not only for each process but also for the feedstocks used. These have moved far beyond virgin vegetable oils to include second-generation and advanced feedstocks like palm oil mill effluents (POMEs), used cooking oils (UCO/RUCOs) and waste animal fats. While supported by climate schemes like the EU’s Renewable Energy Directive (RED II), the use of these new feedstocks requires a new flexibility in purification — and the right multipurpose system to succeed.Renewable fuels retain a major role in global climate efforts, and especially renewable diesel sees fast growth. With our Tonsil® RNF series adsorbents for removing contaminants from oils and fats, renewable fuel producers can significantly enhance the efficiency and outcomes of their processes.With its combination of strong binding power and high adjustability, our Tonsil® portfolio provides that system. From catalyst-poisoning metals to impurities like soaps, chlorine or sugar, it reliably removes many contaminants during pretreatment and final fuel polish, while reducing feedstock losses, preventing bottlenecks and enhancing filtration.With a partner like Tonsil® and Clariant at your side, almost anything’s possible in purification.
  • Renewable Fuel Purification
    For optimum biofuel refining, our premium highly active adsorbents and catalysts are customized to process almost any feedstock (HVO, FAME, UCO, POME) including impurity removal
  • sunliquid®
    Agricultural residues efficiently converted into cellulosic ethanol – think ahead, think sunliquid®.
