SK Innovation Taps Honeywell for Hydrogen Plant CCS Study (Int'l.)
SK Innovation and Energy, Honeywell UOP
Date: 2021-11-17
Soul, South Korea-headquartered SK Innovation and Energy is reporting the selection of Des Plaines, Illinois, based Honeywell UOP for a feasibility study to retrofit a hydrogen plant with carbon capture and storage (CCS) of more than 400,000 tons of CO2 at its 840,000 bpd petroleum refinery in Ulsan, Korea. The captured CO2 would be stored in depleted natural gas reservoirs, beginning in 2026.

The project is in line with South Korea's commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, according to the release. (Source: SK Innovation and Energy, Website PR, Nov., 2021) Contact: SK Innovation and Energy, www.eng.skinnovation.com; Honeywell UOP, www.uop.com

Honeywell, Wood Technologies Support SAF (Ind. Report)
Honeywell, Honeywell UOP
Date: 2021-09-24
Honeywell is reporting the Honeywell UOP Ecofining process technology converts waste oils, fats, and greases into Honeywell Green Jet Fuel™, a drop-in replacement for jet fuel. When using a feedstock such as used cooking oils, lifecycle GHG emissions can be reduced by 80 pct at this stage compared to conventional petroleum jet fuel.

As the next step in enhancing the Ecofining process technology offering, Wood plc's technology will be integrated to use the byproducts of the UOP Ecofining process technology to produce renewable hydrogen, reducing lifecycle GHG emissions a further 10 pct when compared to the total GHG emissions produced by conventional petroleum jet fuel. The renewable hydrogen is then injected back into the Honeywell Ecofining process to remove feed impurities and create a cleaner burning renewable fuel.

The CO2 generated from the production of the hydrogen can be captured and routed for permanent underground sequestration using the Honeywell H2 Solutions technology suite, further reducing lifecycle GHG emissions an additional 10 pct when compared to the total GHG emissions produced by conventional petroleum jet fuel. The combination of technologies results in an aviation fuel that is effectively carbon neutral compared to petroleum fuels.

The UOP Ecofining process is used in most 100 pct biofeed units producing renewable diesel and all the licensed renewable jet fuel production in the world today. Honeywell UOP currently has licensed 22 Ecofining units in nine countries processing 12 different types of renewable feedstocks.

Wood is a global engineering and consultancy across the built environment and energy sector. The company provides consulting, projects, and operations solutions in more than 60 countries and is a pioneer in hydrogen production technology working with more than 120 hydrogen and synthesis gas plants worldwide.

United, Honeywell to Invest in SAF Startup (Ind. Report)
United Airlines, Honeywell,Alder Energy
Date: 2021-09-10
United Airlines Holdings Inc. and Honeywell International Inc. are reporting a multi-million dollar investment in Alder Energy LLC, a clean-technology company to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at scale.

Alder's technology converts woody biomass, forest and agricultural waste to produce SAF while using the same refineries, pipelines and engines as traditional fuel. United, which began using biofuels in 2009, has also pledged to buy 1.5 billion gallons of SAF over the next 20 years.

The company in 2015 made a similar commitment with alternative fuels developer Fulcrum BioEnergy Inc., agreeing to buy up to 900 million gallons of low-cost sustainable biofuels from waste, particularly woody biomass from the paper and pulp industry, the food industry and others.

The companies hope to commercialize the technology by 2025.

PBF Taps Honeywell for Renewable Diesel Project (Ind. Report)
PBF Energy, Honeywell UOP
Date: 2021-09-01
Further to our 13 August coverage, Des Plaines, Illinois-based Honeywell is reporting independent transportation fuel refiner and supplier PBF Energy has selected Honeywell Ecofining™ technology for a potential renewable diesel(RD) project at its Chalmette Refinery in Louisiana. PBF is currently evaluating the conversion of an idle hydrocracking unit at the plant to a single-stage Ecofining unit that if constructed would produce 20,000 bpd of renewable diesel (RD) fuel. A final investment decision by PBF is expected in the coming months.

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.

PBF Energy -- a major independent petroleum refiners and suppliers of unbranded transportation fuels -- has refining operations in California, Delaware, Louisiana, New Jersey and Ohio.

Diamond Green Diesel Seeks Ren. Diesel Pathways Cert. (Ind. Report)
Diamond Green Diesel
Date: 2019-12-06
Diamond Green Diesel -- a JV formed between a subsidiary of Valero and Irving, Texas-based low-carbon feedstock supplier Darling Ingredients Inc. -- reports it has filed an application with the California Air Resources Board (CARB) seeking carbon intensity (CI) certification for the Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) of renewable diesel (RD) pathways from distillers corn oil; rendered animal fat; and used cooking oil (UCO) at the Diamond Green Diesel LLC facility in Norco, Louisiana.

The Norco plant uses the UOP Ecofining Process to produce renewable diesel. The process hydrogenates triglycerides and free fatty acid feedstocks which are then isomerized to create a high-quality hydrocarbon fuel (RD). In addition to RD, the process produces a liquid petroleum gas vapor stream (LPG vapor); a liquid petroleum liquid stream (naphtha LPG); and a purge gas stream. All of the co-product streams go to the adjacent Valero oil refinery to be separated into fuel gas, propane, and naphtha through a distillation process. For the purposes of the CI certification, displacement credit was given to the fuel gas used as fuel gas for hydrogen production at the Valero refinery.

Producing 275 million gpy of Honeywell Green Dieselâ„¢, Diamond Green Diesel is the largest commercial advanced biofuel facility in the US.
