Production of renewable crude oil

Refining company | Southern US

Project description

Production of renewable crude oil

Scope of work

The team assisted a client in obtaining patent protection for its process to produce a renewable fuel, including gasoline and diesel, from used fats and oils rather than from crude oil.

This renewable crude will allow a petroleum refinery to produce fuels and other hydrocarbon products with a lower carbon footprint, without requiring any new equipment. The technology has proven to be widely commercially successful with demand significantly exceeding supply to date.


The team was led from our Houston and Austin offices.
