Honeywell's single-stage Ecofining process is a fast-to-market, capital efficient solution ideal for repurposing underutilized hydroprocessing units to produce higher yields of renewable diesel fuel than other single-stage technologies, according to Honeywell. The process produces Honeywell Green Diesel™ fuel, which is chemically identical to petroleum-based diesel.
The UOP and Eni SpA jointly developed the Ecofining process which uses a combination of catalysts in a single operating environment to remove oxygenates and other contaminants from the feedstock, and then isomerize the feed to improve its cold-flow properties. Due to its simplified design, single-stage Ecofining technology can be put into service quickly, with lower capital expense than other designs, according to the release.

The joint initiative aims to develop bio-propanol from glycerin, a side product in the production of industrial biodiesel that Eni would buy from European producers, with a BASF catalyst.
Bio-propanol produced in this way has better chemical properties than bioethanol and is therefore a valuable component for the preparation of premium gasoline, according to the release.
