Past event: Oleofuels 2022 Conference

Oleofuels 2022 will take place on the 18th and 19th May 2022, in Marseille, France.

The European HVO market has seen significant growth over the last 5 years, with more and more oil majors, such as Neste, Total, ENI and dedicated fuels producers alike are continuing to invest heavily in HVO production units. With the continued focus on reducing GHG and CO2 emissions both in Europe, and around the globe, the demand for more sustainable fuels has never been higher. However with increasing competition from Asia and the US, the need for sustainable feedstock, technological adaptation, increasing regulatory pressures, price fluctuation, and the need for more investment in R&D show that the industry is facing some significant challenges.

Already on its 13th edition of a very successful series, Oleofuels 2022 will bring together senior representatives from the biodiesel, renewable diesel and HVO industries to discuss the latest market advancements, developments & business opportunities.

The Great Lockdowns

We are doing everything to ensure that all our events go ahead as advertised, returning to the much-missed and valuable face-to-face interaction as soon as possible. In order to ensure the events are delivered as safely as possible, venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in line with the relevant local and regulations and guidelines.

These have been exceptionally challenging times with very fast-moving updates. As we get closer to an event we look at each one individually, paying careful heed to local regulations, but without ignoring the international situation. Whatever happens, We will safeguard the investments that attendees have made by either automatically moving it to the new dates of the event or a full credit will be provided for use when booking a future ACI event.
