The Venice biorefinery is the first case in the world of conversion from a traditional refinery.
Since 2014, approximately 230,000 tons of vegetable oils have been processed and converted here every year. From 2024, thanks to a further upgrade, the processing capacity is expected to be augmented, with an increasing share of raw materials from food production waste, such as oils, animal fats and other advanced by-products.
To win the challenge of the energy transition it is crucial to make the best of the existing industrial apparatus. This is why we insist on remediation, recycling and conversion.
This refinery was opened almost 50 years ago and the insulation and anticorrosive protection treatment was delivered by Isolfin which therefore followed the entire life cycle and renewed the multi-specialist maintenance contract with Eni (scaffolding, insulation, painting, passive fire protection, reclamation and much more) up to 2023.
