Sustainable Aviation Fuel ~ Renewable Diesel Singapore

A 1 Day Course on


Renewable Diesel / Sustainable Aviation Fuel 

14 June 2024, Singapore



Thanks to growing acceptance by the transportation sector and supported by commercially demonstrated, scalable technologies, renewable diesel (“RD”) and sustainable aviation fuel (“SAF”) plants are being built around the world. Leaning on years of advisory services in the sector, the course director will share his insight and real-world lessons learned for attendees interested in developing, owning, or operating a RD/SAF plant.

The course will highlight:

  • Overview of the industry that focuses on global growth trends and regulatory drivers.
  • Basic process design discussion, leading RD/SAF technology licensors, and greenfield construction versus refinery revamp considerations.
  • Typical capital and operating expenses, feedstock sourcing costs, pretreatment options, and product pricing examples will then be used to illustrate potential economic returns.
  • Project development challenges including site selection, logistics considerations, EPC execution, and commissioning/start-up.

Key Issues to be Covered


Renewable fuels industry’s role in the ongoing clean energy transition


Trends in evolving global energy supply and demand balances


Competing renewable diesel and/or SAF technologies considering technical requirements, licensing issues, process guarantees, carbon footprints, and construction options


Representative project economics for renewable diesel/SAF


Various commercial feed pretreatment and technology options


Renewable feedstock supply, including global supply/demand balances, pricing relationships, and logistics
