Haarslev enters strategic feedstock, marketing, investment alliance with Grön Fuels

Denmark-based Haarslev Inc. announced Oct. 4 that it has entered a strategic marketing and investment alliance with Grön Fuels LLC, a subsidiary of Fidelis New Energy LLC. The alliance pairs the leading meat, poultry and fish rendering and processing equipment manufacturer with the carbon-negative sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel project utilizing proven technologies from leading global companies.

Haarslev is the world’s No. 1 provider of rendering and related processing solutions, offering the most reliable and efficient machinery available across meat, poultry and fish rendering and processing industries, holding a global footprint with manufacturing facilities across America, Europe and Asia, and sales offices in 21 countries and sales representatives in 28 countries worldwide.

Grön Fuels’ 65,000-barrel-per-day (approximately 930-million-gallon-per-year) SAF and renewable diesel plant will serve global customers in need of low- or negative-carbon transportation fuels.

Located at the Port of Greater Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Grön Fuels is designed to use all traditional renewable feedstocks, including fats, oils and greases, as well as emerging feedstocks such as camelina, carinata and algae oil.

The Grön Fuels GigaSystem™ also includes bioenergy with carbon capture and sequestration (BECCS) and carbon-negative power (CNP) facilities that will further reduce carbon intensity (CI) of the SAF and renewable diesel produced from all feedstocks.

Grön Fuels’ GigaSystem™ is ideal to utilize the nonfood, low-CI feedstock produced by Haarslev’s superior technology and is expected to start production in 2025.

This alliance establishes a preferred marketing and investment relationship, where Haarslev and Grön Fuels jointly approach and evaluate potential rendering byproduct and investment opportunities. Grön Fuels may provide capital in exchange for product and Haarslev may provide rendering equipment to the potential rendering facility for a collaborative, high-return value proposition that reduces risk and expands value for rendering parties.

This relationship will encompass North American rendering projects within Haarslev’s development pipeline across all species of rendering processing.

Together, Haarslev, with its best-in-class rendering-equipment technologies that guarantee throughput and maximize quality and yield performance, combined with leveraging the Grön Fuels low- or negative-carbon GigaSystem™, can provide a unique combination of capital, reliable byproduct solution, logistical advantage, and value creation to businesses across North America.

“Our commitment to be leading in solutions for the sustainable feed and food is expanding with our new strategic alliance with Grön Fuels,” said Troels Svendsen, president of Haarslev Inc. “It fits with our strong focus on taking care of tomorrow and our [environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG)] goals. We believe this alliance will bring tremendous value to our customers, communities and stakeholders as we move into further value escalation and upcycling of the products derived from nonfood and rendering processing.”

Brian Carter, president of Grön Fuels, added, “We are excited to collaborate with the world’s leading provider of rendering and processing equipment in the sourcing and production of nonfood, low-carbon feedstocks in Grön Fuels’ production of SAF and renewable diesel.”

Greg Smith, senior vice president of commercial and logistics for Grön Fuels, said, “This new strategic alliance provides a holistic solution for rendered products with an expansive North American reach for all new and existing rendering operations, providing unique value creation throughout the renderer’s business, from equipment to renewable-fuels feedstock.”
