THE TECHNOLOGY

THE SWESTEP PLANT

The SWESTEP plant is scalable and flexible with regard to both the input material (feedstock) and end product perspectives.

Scalability with options with regard to size and number of production lines possible within each plant opens up the market for both small and large operators.

The product portfolio consists of the following production facilities;

  • SWTP-500 (4 ML / Year)
  • SWTP-1000 (8 ML / Year)
  • SWTP-5000 (40 ML / Year)

In order to maximize the output of each SWESTEP Plant it is possible to combine different size SWPT units (production lines) to meet the desired production volume.

SWESTEP offers a mobile plant with a production capacity of 100 litres per hour. A solution suitable for smaller farms and businesses, as well as refugee camps or to be used on ships at sea.

At the moment, research and development are conducted for the feasibility of a larger scale plant with production capacity of 12,500 litres per hour with the possibility of being scaled up to a 25,000 litres per hour plant. Larger plants are tailored and built based on the customers’ needs and requirements.

THE FEEDSTOCK

THE PROCESS

The process meets all the demands of sustainability both from a circular and
profitability perspective,as well as from a climate and economic standpoint.

The CC (Catalytic Conversion) process is a liquefaction technology
that transforms biomass, organic waste, including plastics
into renewable fuels and sustainable liquids/oils.

THE END PRODUCTS

The End Products Provide Sustainability to The Transport Sector and Valuable Raw Materials to Fossil Dependent Industries

Today the core product of a SWESTEP Plant is renewable Diesel; a chemical composition that fulfils the European norm DIN E590 for automotive fuels.

Results from our research and development indicate that the technology in the near future will be capable of supplying fuel to the whole transport sector (Air, land and sea). Renewable fuel alternatives and sustainable raw oils will be processed into green performance chemicals and additives usable in most fossil dependent industries.

The product portfolio consists of
four (4) main end products

  • Renewable Fuels
  • Sustainable Liquids/oils
  • Water
  • CO2 – Neutral +

THE END PRODUCT SEGMENTS ARE DIVIDED INTO TWO MAIN DIVISIONS

Direct End Products (DEP)

 

Current Products - Renewable and circular end products
that are
formed (from A-Z) in a SWESTEP Plant

   •  Renewable Diesel (EN-590 approved).
   •  Variations of Fuels for the Transport Sector.
   •  Raw Oil (Chemical Raw Material) for the Chemical Industry.
   •  Variations of Liquids and Additives for the Fossil Dependent Industry.
   •  Water and CO2

New Raw Materials (NRM)

 

Sustainable raw oil that will be refined in collaboration with the petrochemical industry.

The second stage of development is to create performance chemicals for fossil dependent industries such as; Textile, Plastic, Medical and Cosmetic, to mention but a few.

As our end products (green fuels and liquids) have an identical chemical molecular structure to the fossil raw materials, our technology presents opportunities to replace and deliver a sustainable alternative to the world’s fossil dependence.
