Driving the biofuels market with expertise and technology

Biofuels plays an important role in energy transition needs as we move to sustainable solutions together with the international community. Due to changing public policies, increased government incentives and growing consumer demand, biofuels projects have become an advanced solution for low-carbon energy, drawing the attention of oil and gas companies, the agroindustry, chemical companies and wood processing industries.

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 project 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 ethanol first- and second-generation 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 turnkey delivery. We work with our clients from start to finish to successfully deliver biofuel projects as clean energy solutions.
