Wibax converting liquid bulk terminals to run on bio-oil
Wibax AB has revealed that it has begun converting the tank farms at its biofuel– and chemical terminals to operate on biofuels in a bid to reduce its carbon footprint.
Sweden-headed sustainable chemical and biofuels supplier Wibax AB has revealed that it has begun converting the tank farms at its terminals to operate on biofuels in a bid to reduce its carbon footprint. Apart from supplying bio-oils and biofuels, Wibax offers a turnkey concept which, in addition to supplying bio-oil, also includes the conversion of client facilities to operate of the biofuel.
We have now completed the conversion of our terminal in Skelleftehamn in Sweden. The next terminal in line is Norrköping and this will be followed by Uddevalla terminal during the autumn. The installation time and commissioning take around four weeks per terminal. Heating at the terminals will be performed using Wibax’s own bio-oil. By converting from fossil fuel to biofuel in the terminals, where we store the products in tank farms that require heating, we are achieving major CO2 reductions., said Mikael Sundström, Biofuels Manager for Wibax AB.
