Biofuels Recruitment

The production of biofuels is steadily rising throughout the world as refineries look to offset emissions and governments craft policies incentivizing the use of fossil fuel alternatives. The global push towards sustainable energy has led prominent trading firms to bolster their renewable fuels presence in order to meet soaring demand. HW Anderson has become a key industry player in the recruitment of high profile renewable fuels traders across global markets. As a biofuels recruitment specialist, our access at every level of the renewable fuels supply chain offers us an edge in providing our clients with top level talent. Our team is committed to engaging all product markets across the renewable fuels space: biofuels, biodiesel, credit production/trading (RINs, LCFS, RECs, etc).


Functional Scope

The global energy transition has presented a plethora of products never previously tradeable. As newer products become more prevalent, they become more tradeable, and markets become more liquid. A supply chain tradeable at every point naturally implies a wide array of products available to trade. The increase in the sophistication of the biofuels market has increased the demand for HW Anderson as a biofuels recruitment specialist. We operate high level searches across the renewables space and possess granular knowledge of the different renewable fuels products.


  • Ethanol: Our network throughout the agriculture and energy industries give us access to talent on both ends of the ethanol supply chain. We routinely place a spectrum of talent ranging from feedstock traders specializing in wheat and corn, to refiners blending finished products.
  • Biofuels and Biodiesel: Individuals responsible for trading finished physical products between refineries and third-party consumers. Traders specializing in storage, facilitating the transportation, and actual sale of renewable fuels themselves.
  • Renewable Feedstocks: Renewable fuels are blended with sustainable products that lower their carbon intensity. We identify individuals involved in producing, sourcing, importing and exporting these sustainable products which include animal fats, used cooking oils, vegetable oils, and other waste products used in the blending process.
  • Renewable Credits: Governments throughout the world are committed to lowering greenhouse gas emissions. A common approach taken to achieve this goal is through creation of tradable credits generated upon production of a renewable fuel. These credits (RINs, LCFS, RECs) have created new trading markets where they can be consistently bought and sold.

The renewables fuels space is grounded in the transfer of physical products from producers to consumers. We specialize in identifying traders who are experts in specific areas of the physical supply chain and efficiently trade their products to their desired endpoint.


Individuals who trade the financial derivatives associated with physical renewable fuels products. These traders work in tandem with merchants and physical traders to efficiently produce profitable margins.

Individuals who source business development deals along the supply chain are of growing importance in the renewable fuels space.
