Braya Renewables Fuels completes refinery conversion to biofuels


Braya Renewable Fuels announced that it has successfully completed the refinery conversion project at Braya Renewable Fuels refinery formerly known as Come By Chance Refinery in Newfoundland and Labrador and began commercial operations.

“We are incredibly grateful for all of the hard work and dedication of the Braya team that has allowed us to achieve commercial operations at the refinery,” said Todd O’Malley, CEO, Braya Renewable Fuels.

“I would personally like to thank our workers, the community, all levels of government, and our partners who have helped to bring our vision of a world-class renewable fuel facility to fruition. We are proud to be a cornerstone in the energy transition path and to provide  stable and long-term employment opportunities in the local community.”

The refinery will initially produce 18,000 barrels per day of renewable diesel, with future plans to expand production capacity, add sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production capabilities and explore green hydrogen production.

The on-site production of renewable diesel, SAF and green hydrogen will be used to help hard-to-abate sectors such as heavy-duty transport, aviation, and heavy industry achieve decarbonisation.

Earlier in April 2023, Braya Renewable Fuels has received a $300m investment from private equity investment firm, Energy Capital Partners (ECP).

The investment from ECP completed the financing for the conversion of Braya’s Come-By-Chance refinery in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada to low-carbon fuel and (SAF) operations.
