Biovegetal is one of the largest producers of renewable energy in Portugal, distributing biodiesel in Portugal and in several European countries

Founded in 1997, Biovegetal has its headquarters and factories in Vila Franca de Xira – Alhandra. It started with a transesterification unit dedicated to the production of biofuels from vegetable oils such as soybean oil and rapeseed oil. In 2015 it built a physical refinery/pre-treatment unit to develop alternative energy from waste, namely used cooking oil, animal fat and more recently food waste, continuously encouraging the development of the “circular”/renewable economy.

Biovegetal benefits from a multi-hub logistics infrastructure comprising excellent road access to Portugal’s main motorway, rail terminals and leased storage tanks dedicated to handling biodiesel at a deepwater oil and gas terminal in port of Lisbon.
