Petrobras to start blending diesel with vegetable oil in 2008

Nov 05, 2007 01:00 AM

Brazil’s state oil company Petrobras said it would introduce a pioneering low-sulphur diesel producing technology involving vegetable oils at two refineries by 2008.
Petroleo Brasileiro Supplies Director Paulo Roberto Costa told the so-called H-Bio technology will combine diesel fractions from distillation, cracking and retarded coking with soy oil and hydrogen as raw materials to churn out high-quality diesel with mineral fuel qualities.

“It’s a groundbreaking technology and we’ve asked for patents. Vegetable oil substitutes diesel fractions and adds value...”
“It’s a revolution for Brazil, and I’m sure it’s going to spread in the world from here,” Costa said.
