Revap will adapt one of its Diesel Hydrotreatment Units to expand the production of S-10 diesel. With an investment of BRL 260 million, the project includes the modernization and installation of equipment at the U-272D unit, which will stop producing S500 diesel and will start producing S-10 diesel, a more modern and sustainable product, with lower of sulfur (maximum 10 ppm), which meets local and international market specifications, in addition to environmental requirements.

This fuel also provides positive impacts in the reduction of emissions of particulate matter and nitrogen oxides. In addition to the difference in sulfur content, the S-10 diesel has a higher cetane level, an index that measures the quality of ignition.

The unit's adaptation works are expected to be completed in the second half of 2025. With the project, Revap will have two S-10 diesel production units, which will practically double the supply of fuel, going from the current 44,000 barrels/d to 85,000 barrels/d.

The S-10 diesel produced at Revap mainly supplies the Vale do Paraíba region. Part of the production is sent to Replan, in Campinas, from where it is directed to other poles in the country.

The adaptation project for the U-272D Hydrotreatment Unit is in the technical detailing phase and should be put out to tender soon.

About Revap

Inaugurated in March 1980, the Henrique Lage Refinery has the capacity to process 252,000 barrels of oil daily and produces, in addition to S-10 diesel, other important derivatives, such as gasoline, LPG and aviation kerosene (QAV-1).
