The project in a nutshell

  • Carbon dioxide emissions can be reduced by up to 1.7 million tonnes. That is over a third of all CO₂ emissions from lorries in Sweden in 2021.
  • Crude oil is replaced, among other things, by leftovers from fast-food kitchens.
  • We will require expertise from, among others, process engineers, designers and project managers.
  • We are managing the design, engineering and project management of this vital project.

Challenges await!

What if you could play an essential role in tackling the challenges of renewable feedstocks like tall oil, rapeseed oil, and recycled cooking oil, which offer more oxygen than fossil fuels? By engaging with this vital process and discovering that hydrogen is the key to removing excess oxygen, you'll contribute to a more sustainable future.
