Finland-based St1 signed an engineering agreement with Haldor Topsoe for a renewable diesel production unit at its refinery in Gothenburg, Sweden. First announced earlier this year, St1 is planning to produce 6 MGY of renewable diesel by 2020. This will be St1 first foray into renewable diesel; the company is already operating ethanol plants in Sweden and Finland. While feedstock remains undisclosed, St1 plans echoes that of Andeavor’s earlier this year (see the August 8, 2017 LRAFJ). Refiners are taking notice of the increasing demand for renewable diesel and taking steps towards involvement in the space.
