fuel for a better world





Eco-Oil’s patented catalytic process creates fossil-free petrol, diesel and jet-fuel from energy crops, forest or agricultural residues, sawdust etcetera, by using a metallurgic catalysis containing noble metals. It is a heterogeneous catalysis in which the catalyst occupies a different phase than the reactants and products. 


The refinery process is very simple and compact and requires only three steps; two catalytic and one hydration - compared with a traditional refinery process for fossil fuel that requires a vast amount of catalytic steps and a spacious refinery plant design.


Even though the refinery process is scaled-down drastically, it can still produce a large quantity of fuel while being operated under low pressure. The technology has allowed the engineers at Eco-Oil to accommodate a large number of reactors into a micro-refinery in the size of a shipping container that can either be self-sustained or built together modularly to form a larger plant to scale-up production and add redundancy. Each micro-refinery container is able to produce between 15 to 30 million litres of petrol, diesel or jet-fuel per year.



  •  Dimension:  12,19 x 2,44 x 2,99 metres
  •  Fuel variants:  Petrol, diesel or jet-fuel
  •  Capacity:  15-30 million litres of fuel per year
  •  Numbers of reactors (catalysts):  5000
  •  Minimum lifetime of catalysts:  12 years

Since the input material is made of biomass and even the catalysis is fossil-free, Eco-Oil offers the only solution on the market that is truly 100% fossil-free. Unlike HVO, for example, no fossil hydrogen is needed for hydrogenation. The only by-products generated by the refinery process are clean (deionized) water, fossil-free LPG (bio-LPG) and degradable carbon residues that could be used as soil improvers/fertilizers.


In addition, the fuels are CO2-neutral as the carbon dioxide emerging when the engine is burning fuel is the same carbon dioxide that was already collected in the input material. Combustion therefore does not create new carbon dioxide.
