Axens’ Vegan technology selected by Total for its first Biorefinery in France
The Vegan™ technology of Axens has been selected by Total for its first Biorefinery to be located at La Mède (France). The plant will produce 500,000 Ton-per-year of high quality paraffinic biodiesel, treating primarily used oils, as well as other renewable feedstocks.

This technology was originally developed by IFP Energies nouvelles in the mid-2000, based upon an extensive research and development program.

Vegan™ technology fundamentally consists in hydroprocessing any kind/mixture of renewable lipids into ultra-clean iso-paraffins. The resulting high quality mixture of bio-paraffins exhibits a high cetane number, tunable cold-flow properties, contains virtually no sulfur neither aromatic compounds and is easily blended into regular diesel or jet fuel.

Vegan™ is based upon Axens’ large experience in conventional hydroprocessing technologies and catalysts with more than 200 units licensed in the world totalizing around 10 million bbl/day capacity as well as a strong knowledge of lipidic feedstock processing. Axens has pioneered the first-generation biodiesel market in the 90’s, through Esterfip™ technologies, based on transesterification processand totalizing 14 references.

Axens is providing Vegan™ technology license, basic engineering, catalysts, proprietary equipment and related services: training, unit start-up and follow-up.
