European major BP is converting five of its oil refineries into biorefineries in a bid to produce 100,000 b/d of biofuels and grab a 20% of the sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) market by 2030. Lingen is one of them, alongside Rotterdam in the Netherlands, Castellon in Spain, Cherry Point in the US state of Washington and Kwinana in Australia. BP plans to co-process inedible carinata oil at its 5 million tons per year (249,000 barrels per day) Lingen refinery in Germany for seven days in September. The trial is aimed at boosting BP's sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) output at the 70-year old plant. In an Aug. 26 statement, BP said it began making small quantities of co-processed SAF from used cooking oil alongside crude at Lingen in February 2022. Now it wants to ramp up the share of biocomponents it processes and is looking for more feedstocks.
