The fuel team

The fuel team at EFO consists of an experienced group of people that spend most of their time to evaluate possible fuels to source. The strategy is both fairly simple and at the same time quite complex. Simple in the sense that our goal is to secure the right amount of good quality fuel and complex in the sense that a possible fuel has to have a green light in a lot of different meanings to fit our standards.

The process of turning waste into fuel looks like this:

Leads

We constantly look for possible waste to bring to Sweden and turn into fuel to create energy. However – to meet our high standards, many criteria have to be filled. We have built up a wide network of partners and also attend conferences and fairs on a regular basis.

Opportunity ranking

First up, whenever a possible opportunity arises, we do a quick ranking regarding the type of fuel, the quality of the fuel, possible means of transportation, and other overall factors.

Desktop evaluation

When a possible fuel passed the ranking process, a desktop evaluation is being made by one of our members of the fuels team. We look thoroughly into every detail regarding the opportunity and if all boxes check green – we move on to the next step.

Site evaluation

When a possible fuel passed the ranking process, a desktop evaluation is being made by one of our members of the fuels team. We look thoroughly into every detail regarding the opportunity and if all boxes check green – we move on to the next step.

Negotiation

We then begin to negotiate the price that has to cover the logistic costs as well as our handling costs. Other important factors that are being negotiated are of course the amount of fuel that we can expect and certain time frames are being checked to see if we can meet the current local logistic situation.

Portfolio evaluation

We then check our current stock of fuels and project the current and upcoming need for fuel at our partners. As we also have large storage capacity on site at our partners locations, we are being able to balance the deliveries against the current need for fuel.

Final negotiation

Final negotiation takes in count all the above steps and when all is clear, we prepare for all necessary permissions from customs, the so-called TFSs.

Test delivery

Upon test delivery, we closely examine the fuel from every aspect being negotiated. The amount of moist/water the fuel contains is monitored and if everything is to satisfactory, we can begin to take on the fuel.

Execution

One might think of delivery as the end of a long negotiation and evaluations process, but we like to think of it as the contrary; this is where it all begins and now follow ups are being carried out on a day-today basis to make sure the fuel sourced stand our high expectations and what we agreed.
