Bio-markets that don't yet exist

The energy system of the future consists of all kinds of innovative solutions. These innovations differ per market segment and mode; road traffic requires different solutions than shipping and air transport. We therefore look at new sustainable feedstocks, as well as ground breaking conversion technologies to convert these feedstocks into various suitable energy carriers. That is why we are not only looking at liquid fuels, but also at hydrogen and electricity.

We do not want to exclude any feedstock, technology or energy carrier in advance. We are always curious.

As a company with leading knowledge and expertise, we conduct research and testing on biofuels ourselves, to bridge the policy-technology gap. Only then can we say: ‘We’ve tested the feedstock or fuel with our own innovative resources and partners, and these our are findings. What have we learnt? How can we move forward?’

 

Our Sourcing & Sustainability Manager Ratna Nataliani explains: ‘When we assess a new feedstock, we look into it beyond the environmental aspects or guidelines from voluntary schemes. We take a closer look at the legal, economic and social impacts of each feedstock. We ask ourselves again and again: Is this form of energy really a residue stream? Once we have a reasonably clear idea about the feedstock, and a green light from our Sustainability Board, we commence this quest of the feedstock or the feedstock-based final products.'

A pioneering role with HVO

Rotterdam, 1 September 2022

To reduce CO2 emissions worldwide we are accelerating the use of sustainable energy carriers and phasing out fossil fuels. One the of the greatest fuels we use to reduce CO2 is HVO, a synthetic diesel, which is produced from the residue streams of the food industry or industrial processes. It is also a very sustainable fuel: it reduces CO2 emissions up to 89 percent and ensures clean combustion, both on land and water.
