Our liquid biofuel power plants are designed to operate on straight vegetable oils or animal fats. In other words, no fuel refinement is needed, meaning even higher savings in CO2 emissions. The oils can typically be extracted with simple methods so that even the CO2 emissions associated with the fuel production are minimized.
We have liquid biofuel power plants in four countries with a total combined output of 820 MW. Our largest liquid biofuel power plant is the ItalGreen plant in Italy with a total output of 115 MW.
