Alfa Laval has won a $50m order to supply processing systems and equipment for feedstock pretreatment to an undisclosed US refinery that is switching from traditional petroleum refining to renewable biofuel production.
The landmark order is among the largest to date for Alfa Laval. It follows strategic investments made by the company in adapting its technologies to develop state-of-the-art equipment for renewable diesel (hydrotreated vegetable oil) production. The equipment will support the fuel industry’s transition from the current processes to more sustainable solutions.
In this case, the customer is converting a petroleum refinery into a biofuel plant that will supply the transport industry. Alfa Laval will deliver systems for pretreating fats and oils and handling wastewater at the biofuel plant. Delivery is scheduled for 2022.
Lund-based Alfa Laval works in the heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling sector.
“Alfa Laval is committed to supporting efforts to decarbonize made by the industries and the societies in which we operate,” said Tom Erixon, president and CEO of Alfa Laval Group. “For us, this means improving traditional production processes and innovating new ones to support the transition to a more sustainable and renewable future, not the least in the energy sector. This order is a confirmation that we can also support large projects to accelerate this transition.”
