Producing Fuel

Green Fuels have pioneered the production of sustainable biofuels since 2003. Our fuel production facilities are based on our principles of maximising efficiency, quality, and environmental sustainability.

Producing Sustainable Fuel

Over more than 15 years Green Fuels has supplied technology for biofuel production with an aggregate capacity of more than xxx tonnes of fuel per annum. While we continue to supply technology to clients and partners, we’re accelerating our contribution to fighting climate change by setting up own-label fuel production facilities. We have a particular focus on producing the right fuels in the right place. This may be sustainable road fuel in markets where there is unmet need and underutilised sustainable feedstock; sustainable aviation fuel to serve the world’s air transport hubs, or sustainable marine fuel where future demand is critical. Our first own-label fuel production is starting now and will gather pace.

Case Study – Berkeley, UK

Green Fuels is the keystone SAF Technology partner for project FlexJET.  The facility located on our site in Berkeley will be the first commercial, exclusively, waste to jet facility operating in Europe, providing a flagship demonstration of our SABR (Sustainable Aviation through Biofuel Refining) process. This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 792216. 

The entirety of production is already allocated to off-takers, but we will be expanding the facility in the UK and establishing further facilities in key markets over the coming years to meet the increasing global demand. 

Case Study – Juiz de Fora, Brazil

Our facility within the metropolitan municipality in Juiz de Fora provides a complete closed-loop, net-zero carbon fuel to the municipality.  Waste collected is converted in a FuelMatic advanced biorefinery into sustainable biodiesel that is used directly in municipal and utility vehicles.  Over the coming years, Green Fuels as the technology provider for the Biokerosene and Renewables Platform in the Zona da Mata plans to scale the technology within Juiz de Fora and install a SABR (SAF) facility. Green Fuels is also engaged in reforestation activity in the region, supporting sustainable silvipastoral agricultural schemes to remediate degraded land.

In five years, the project will have offset more than 2 million tonnes of carbon, restored approximately 75,000 hectares of land and removed 375,000 tonnes of waste oil from the environment or the human food chain.   

The project will generate 400 direct jobs and over 1,000 indirect jobs in Brazil.”
