Shell Moves Forward with Large Netherlands Biofuels Facility

Royal Dutch Shell recently announced that it has made a final investment decision regarding the construction of an 820,000 tons per year biofuels facility at the Shell Energy and Chemicals Park Rotterdam in the Netherlands, which was previously referred to as the Pernis Refinery site.  Once operational in 2024, this biofuels facility will one of the largest European facilities producing sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel made from a waste product feedstock.

No cost figures were given with this announcement, which will see the project produce renewable diesel and SAF from a feedstock comprised of used cooking oil, animal fats, sustainable vegetable oils, and other residual products. SAF output could make up more than half of the production capacity, but Shell will be able to adjust the output depending on customer demand needs.

This latest renewable facility announcement is part of Shell’s Powering Progress plan, where the company intends to transform its existing refineries into five energy and chemical parks. Through this strategy, Shell wants to reduce traditional fuel production by 55% by 2030. This Energy and Chemicals Park in Rotterdam is the second of five planned parks, following the Energy and Chemicals Park Rheinland of Germany from earlier this year.
