A 1 Day Course on
Renewable Diesel / Sustainable Aviation Fuel
12 July 2023, Sydney Australia
Thanks to growing acceptance by the transportation sector and supported by commercially demonstrated, scalable technologies, renewable diesel (“RD”) and sustainable aviation fuel (“SAF”) plants are being built around the world. Leaning on years of advisory services in the sector, the course director will share his insight and real-world lessons learned for attendees interested in developing, owning, or operating a RD/SAF plant.
The course will highlight:
- Overview of the industry that focuses on global growth trends and regulatory drivers.
- Basic process design discussion, leading RD/SAF technology licensors, and greenfield construction versus refinery revamp considerations.
- Typical capital and operating expenses, feedstock sourcing costs, pretreatment options, and product pricing examples will then be used to illustrate potential economic returns.
- Project development challenges including site selection, logistics considerations, EPC execution, and commissioning/start-up.
Key Issues to be Covered
Renewable fuels industry’s role in the ongoing clean energy transition
Trends in evolving global energy supply and demand balances
Competing renewable diesel and/or SAF technologies considering technical requirements, licensing issues, process guarantees, carbon footprints, and construction options
Representative project economics for renewable diesel/SAF
Various commercial feed pretreatment and technology options
Renewable feedstock supply, including global supply/demand balances, pricing relationships, and logistics
