Sweden’s largest fuel company Preem and wood industry company Setra are collaborating on a possible joint production facility for the manufacture of pyrolysis oil, a renewable raw material for biofuel. The facility is being planned at Setra Kastet Sawmill in Gävle and is expected to be completed in 2021.
The facility is estimated to provide around 25,000 tonnes of pyrolysis oil per year that, via Preem’s refinery in Lysekil, will be refined into biofuel. The partnership with Setra is part of Preem’s ambition to manufacture 3,000,000 cubic metres of renewable fuel at refineries in Lysekil and Gothenburg by 2030.
Lindahl’s team consisted of Mikael Mellberg and Christoffer Gramming.
