Exclusive Site Visit:

During the afternoon of Tuesday 4th June 2019, a limited number of conference attendees will receive a unique opportunity to visit ENI's, VENICE Biorefinery

There is no extra charge to attend the site visit, but spaces are limited and allocated on a first - served basis. Please register your attendance when booking for the conference.

Eni's biorefinery project in Venice is the world's first example of conversion of a conventional refinery into a biorefinery, able to transform organic raw materials into high-quality biofuels. The plant produces green diesel, green naphtha, LPG and potentially also jet fuel. It is currently mainly fed by vegetable oil. The plant can also process animal fats, non-edible oils and residues coming from plastic production.
