New Study Finds Massive Growth in Low-Carbon, Circular Biorefineries and Feedstocks

(Houston,TX) Emerging Markets Online has released a new study, Renewable Diesel & Sustainable Aviation Fuels 2030.
HOUSTON - Sept. 1, 2021 - PRLog -- Renewable Diesel & SAF 2030 provides detailed case studies and analysis of the key producers and developers participating in the development of more than 29 renewable diesel projects in the USA, 5 in Canada, 18 in Europe, 11 in Asia, and 2 in South America.

The study also focuses on Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) in detail, providing case studies of producers and the low-carbon feedstocks, technology pathways, partnerships, investors, and off-takers.

Smaller Plants With Specialty, Lower-Carbon Feedstock Partnerships
One key trend of SAF & renewable diesel retrofits of large global petroleum refineries is now being accompanied by the emergence of smaller scale, localized, circular renewable diesel and sustainable aviation refineries.

The Renewable Diesel & SAF 2030 study provides a growing number of case studies of companies that have dedicated joint venture partnerships for (upstream) feedstocks and (downstream) offtake agreements.

Growth in Specialty, Low Carbon, Circular Feedstocks
There is a common misconception that there are not enough feedstocks for these refineries. Emerging Markets Online has discovered this is neither true for commodity traded feedstocks such as soybean oil (Marathon-ADM venture), canola oil (Covenant Energy in Saskatchewan), nor next-generation feedstocks. In fact most of the new refineries have new partnerships with growers of sustainable feed stocks that are non-food-based and are low carbon, circular, sustainable, feedstocks.

This growing trend of smaller, localized plants favors specialized, low-carbon, circular feedstocks in geographically advantaged areas that can benefit the specialty-scale RD/SAF integrated refinery. Feed stocks such as forestry tree oil (St1, UPM, Neste), crude tall oil (Fintoil, Finland), raw tall oil (Preem, Sweden), pongamia (Omega Green Paraguay), castor oil (Eni Italy), specialty camelina (Global Clean Energy-Exxon California), specialty carinata (multiple airlines), purpose grown penny cress (REG), cover cress (NBB R&D initiatives), municipal solid waste (Fulcrum), Distiller's Corn Oil (DCO with Darling and Valero JV Diamond Green Diesel, East Kansas Agri-Energy, and several others), forestry products (Louisiana Green Fuels), Cielo Energy in Canada (sawdust, plastics, tires, MSW, construction debris), circular feedstocks (palm waste and UCO at Neste, Singapore refinery), and smaller, non-commodity traded, feed stocks and specialty markets with higher values.
