BP Kwinana Renewable Fuels Project

Closed 19 Sep 2023

Opened 12 Sep 2023


The Proposal is for the construction and operation of a Renewable fuels processing facility that produces renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel from vegetable oils, animal fats and other biowaste products. 

The biorefinery will reuse the existing processing infrastructure formerly used for hydrocarbon refining (such as hydrofiner units, storage tanks, pipelines and utilities such as the flare and wastewater treatment plant) combined with some additional new infrastructure such as a Hydrogen Generation Unit, Pre-Treatment Unit, Product Fractionation Unit and Anaerobic Bio Digestion Unit.  

The Proposal is located at the former oil refinery site in the Kwinana Industrial Area and will use existing disturbed footprint to implement this project.

Why your views matter

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The EPA's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
