Preem to offer B15 biodiesel across Sweden beginning in April
Preem's Evolution fuel is produced from tall oil, which is often referred to as liquid rosin or tallol and is a byproduct of the Kraft process of pinewood for pulp and paper. The tall oil undergoes initial treatment at Preem's Sunpine factory in Piteå, Sweden before it's refined to diesel specs at the oil company's plant in Gothenburg.
Preem has the capacity to process 26.4 million gallons of crude tall oil and, when mixed with conventional diesel, this means that up to 159 million gallons of Evolution Diesel could potentially flow out of Preem's pumps every year.
