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.

PBF Energy Selects Honeywell Tech. for RD Project (Ind. Report)
PBF Energy
Date: 2021-08-13
Further to our 5th June coverage, Des Plaines, Illinois-based Honeywell reports independent petroleum refiner and transportation fuels supplier PBF Energy Inc. has selected Honeywell Ecofining™ technology for a potential renewable diesel (RD) project at its Chalmette Refinery in Louisiana.

Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey-headquartered 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 fuel. A final investment decision by PBF is expected in the coming months.

Honeywell's single-stage Ecofining process produces Honeywell Green Diesel™ fuel from non-edible natural oils and animal fats. The fuel is chemically identical to petroleum diesel and can be used as a drop-in replacement in vehicles with no engine modifications.

US PBF Considering $550Mn Renewable Diesel Project (Ind. Report)
PBF Energy
Date: 2021-06-25
Parsippany-Troy Hills, New Jersey-headquartered PBF Energy reports it is considering a $550 million project that would retrofit an idled hydrocracker to produce renewable diesel at its 189,000 bpd Chalmette refinery near New Orleans, Louisiana. The project would allow Chalmette to produce feedstocks for the retrofitted unit from soybean oil, corn oil and other vegetable oils and animal fats.

PBF is an independent petroleum refiner and supplier of unbranded transportation fuels, heating oils, lubricants, petrochemical feedstocks, and other petroleum products. PBF final investment decision on the project is subject to tax incentives which are expected to be announced later in the summer.
