Alfa Laval has secured a SEK60 million order from the Nordic energy company St1 for a process line to be installed in a new biorefinery plant that is being built in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The Alfa Laval equipment will remove various impurities from waste fats and oils, which later will be converted into renewable fuels.

Alfa Laval deliveries are scheduled for 2021.

The new St1 biorefinery, which will have an annual production of 200 000 tonnes of renewable fuels, is expected to open in 2022.
