St1 plans to extend its advanced biofuels production into renewable diesel

St1 invests in a new hydrogen manufacturing unit, which will be built in St1 Refinery in Gothenburg, Sweden. This is the first step in the series of planned investments, which will enable St1 Refinery to start the production of renewable diesel in 2020. The construction work of the new hydrogen unit will start immediately and is estimated to be completed by the end of 2018. This hydrogen manufacturing unit investment project targets to enable a 200.000 tonnes annual capacity of renewable diesel production. The value of the first stage of the project is 40 MEUR.

St1 continues to develop also new advanced ethanol production technologies with a strong focus on ligno-cellulosic feedstocks. The first Cellunolix® plant to manufacture advanced ethanol from sawdust targets to reach full production speed during 2017 in Kajaani Finland. St1 already operates dispersed ethanol plants producing advanced waste-based ethanol for transportation, e.g. using bakery waste as feedstock. One of the plants is integrated into the St1 refinery in Gothenburg.   

The objective of St1's long-term advanced renewable fuels strategy is to enhance company's competitiveness when fulfilling the renewable energy and GHG reduction requirements in its home market i.e. Finland, Sweden and Norway.
