Latest Technologies for Blending Biofuels

With the European Directive targeting a 5.75% biofuel content in diesel and motor fuel pools by 2010, it is now more vital than ever to resolve all technical issues to improve efficiency of the production of biofuels and answer the questions relating to the blending of biofuels into the refinery gasoline pools and diesel pools.

AFTC will tackle these issues head on with contributions from leading specialists in biofuel technology such as Neste Jacobs, UOP and CDTech as well as feature presentations from operating companies such as Česká rafinérská and Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL) on their experiences.
