In Italy, efforts of Eni’s research activities have led to Eni Diesel +, the new fuel with a 15% renewable component, produced from plant oils in Eni’s Venice refinery using the Ecofining™ technology. Eni is the first company in the world to transform an oil refining plant (the Eni plant in Venice) into a biorefinery. Using the Ecofining™ technology it owns (developed in 2006 in the San Donato Milanese laboratories, in cooperation with Honeywell UOP), Eni transforms plant oils into a complete hydrocarbon product that overcomes the qualitative problems of traditional biodiesel.
As of Monday, the new Eni Diesel + became available in over 3,500 fuel stations all over Italy, for customers who want to combine the performance features of the latest-generation premium fuels with more care for the environment.
