Construction of Spain's first advanced biofuels plant commences at Repsol's Cartagena refinery.

Repsol is investing €200 million in the construction of Spain's first advanced biofuels plant at its Cartagena refinery. The plant, which is part of Repsol's efforts to decarbonize its processes and achieve its goal of becoming a net zero emissions company by 2050, will have the capacity to produce 250,000 tons per year of advanced biofuels. These biofuels, including biodiesel, biojet, bionaphtha, and biopropane, will be used in airplanes, trucks, and cars, reducing CO2 emissions by 900,000 tons per year. The project is based on the circular economy and will give a second life to waste from the agri-food industry.
