Swedish fluid handling, centrifugal and heat transfer company Alfa Laval has won a record order for renewable diesel conversion, Markets Insider reported on 31 May.
The US$50M (SEK415M) order involves the supply of processing systems and equipment for feedstock pre-treatment to a US refinery that was converting from petroleum refining to renewable biodiesel production for the transport sector, the report said.
Alfa Laval would be providing systems for pre-treating oils and fats and handling wastewater at the biofuel plant, according to Markets Insider, with delivery scheduled for next year.
“Alfa Laval is committed to supporting efforts to decarbonise made by the industries and the societies in which we operate,” Alfa Laval Group president and CEO Tom Erixon said.
“For us, this means improving traditional production processes and innovating new ones to support the transition to a more sustainable and renewable future, not least in the energy sector. This order is a confirmation that we can also support large projects to accelerate this transition.”
The Stockholm-headquartered company is active in the areas of energy, marine, and food and water in around 100 countries.
