"Biofuels are some of the best developed and fastest growing alternative fuels on the market. With increased funding, Technip Energies believes advanced biofuel projects will become viable and profitable, providing decarbonized solutions to the transportation sector, working to reduce greenhouse gas emissions." 

Dr. Andreas Bormann, VP, Technology Sustainable Chemicals, Fuels & Circular Economy, Technip Energies

Driving the biofuels market with expertise and technology

Biofuels play an important role in energy transition and decarbonization providing a sustainable solution for transportation, electricity generation and heating. Due to changing public policies, increased government incentives and growing consumer demand, biofuel projects have become an advanced solution for low-carbon energy, drawing the attention of transportation, and as a source for electricity generation. Fuels, such as bioethanol and sustainable aviation fuel offer greenhouse gas emissions reduction by more than 80 percent.  

Technip Energies has the know-how and experience to deliver biofuels production projects as sustainable clean energy alternatives. From feasibility studies and basic design to front-end engineering design (FEED) and full EPC phase execution, we offer solutions that get the job done.  

End-to-end project management

Our engineering and end-to-end project management expertise applies directly to the biofuels market, particularly for biorefineries. We offer a wide range of services and proprietary and partnership-based technologies, including sustainable aviation fuel and biodiesel production technologies as well as first- and second-generation ethanol processes. We have extensive experience in the design and construction of bioethanol plants. 

By leveraging our position as a market leader in refinery engineering, we provide our clients the experience to support their biofuels projects from concept and basic design, including CAPEX estimates, to engineering and EPC phase project delivery. We work with our clients from start to finish to successfully deliver biofuel projects as clean energy solutions.
