ARENA Funds Aussie Biosolids-to-Fuels Pilot (Funding, Int'l Report)
Australian Renewable Energy Agency
Date: 2018-07-27
In the Land Down Under, the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) is reporting $4 million in funding to Southern Oil Refining for its $11.8 million pilot project aimed at converting sewage biosolids into crude oil at its existing refinery near Gladstone, Queensland .

The project involves building a demonstration scale hydrothermal liquefaction reactor to produce the renewable crude oil from biosolids. The hydrothermal liquefaction will involve the treatment of the biosolids using a thermochemical conversion process to produce a biocrude oil that will be upgraded to renewable diesel and potentially renewable jet fuel.

ARENA previously funded Southern Oil Refining's first-of-its-kind biocrude and biofuel laboratory and testing facility built onsite at Gladstone as part of its advanced biofuel pilot plant.
