Renewable Fuels

At HELLENiQ ENERGY, we focus on promoting renewable and alternative fuels of biological origin to foster a more sustainable energy outlook. 

Biofuels serve as the primary direct substitutes for fossil fuels in the market, enabling environmentally friendly transportation and aiding in the reduction of CO2 emissions. In the Greek market, the term "biofuels" primarily refers to biodiesel. Biodiesel, which possesses properties similar to those of diesel, is used as a component in all diesel-powered vehicles after being blended with conventional diesel. 

Since 2019, we have expanded our production to include bio-gasolines, alongside biodiesel. We are also exploring the production of non-biological alternative fuels, such as e-fuels. 

Innovative Approaches

Producing Bio-Gasoline Since 2019

We convert bioethanol into bioether and adhere to European standards within the Greek market. 

Renewable Fuels
Reducing Emissions in Air Transport

We have undertaken the supply of Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) for AEGEAN flights from "Macedonia" and "El. Venizelos" airports.

Converting Methyl Ether Production Units

Our methyl ether production units at the Aspropyrgos refinery meet the demand for biofuels.

Projects in Progress

Reduction of Scope 1 and Scope 2 Emissions

  • Pilot plant for producing "green" Hat BEE using electrolysis and electricity from RES (photovoltaics). 

  • Conversion of an SMR unit for "blue" Hproduction at BEE with carbon storage (CCS). 

  • Energy-saving projects across all facilities. 

Energy Autonomy and Operational Security of Facilities

  • Installation of a cogeneration unit at BEE 22MW. 

  • Installation of a cogeneration unit at BEA 2*22MW. 

  • Photovoltaic installation in Megara/BETH. 

Creating a Roadmap for Reducing Scope 3 Emissions


  • A UCO co-processing unit (45 ktpa) at the Thessaloniki refinery is in progress for HVO production. 

  • Development of a new stand-alone SAF production unit at BEA. 

  • Development of options in the hydrogen economy and synthetic fuels. 

  • Green H2 production to support e-methanol/e-jet. 

  • Production of e-methanol/e-jet by utilizing the captured CO2 from the CCS unit. 

  • Green H2 production to support e-fuels (e-ammonia) production by using excess electricity from the “Green Hub North“ project in BETH. 

Circular Economy Initiatives  

  • Feasibility study for a pyrolysis oil production unit from plastic recycling, in collaboration with FCCU, aimed at producing recycled PP. 

  • Study for installing a unit for chemical recycling of plastics at the Aspropyrgos industrial facility, used for producing recycled/green polypropylene.
