In step with biofuels test by airlines, IMO 2020 implementation of the lower 0.50% limit on sulphur in ships’ fuel oil, new government mandates for higher transport biofuel blending, the Singapore summit, is well-timed to track the progress of this fast growing industry. An exclusive Site Visit to Neste’s Singapore bio refinery is arranged to give participants a first-hand experience, and a presentation on Neste’s ‘Sustainable Production Focusing on Circular Economy’.

Also presenting is Indonesia’s PT Pertamina (Persero) on ‘Converting Crude Palm Oil (CPO) into Green Fuel’. Utilising Used Cooking Oil (UCO) as a feedstock is a popular option for producing environmental-friendly biofuels. Singapore’s Alpha Biofuel shares their success stories on transforming UCO into biofuel while Bharat Petroleum – that recently commissioned 2G ethanol bio-refinery – reveals the ‘Roadmap for Advanced Biofuels in India’.
