Honeywell Touts Simplified Renewable Diesel Tech (Ind. Report)
Date: 2021-01-15
Charlotte, N.C.-based Honeywell reports the introduction of a new UOP Ecofining technology for the production of renewable diesel fuel.

The single-stage Ecofining process produces Honeywell Green Diesel fuel which is chemically identical to petroleum-based diesel and can be used as a drop-in replacement in vehicles with no modifications. It also delivers an 80 pct lifecycle reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared with petroleum diesel.

The new process uses a combination of catalysts to clean and remove oxygenates and other contaminants from the feedstock, and then "isomerize" the feed to improve its cold-flow properties.

The UOP Ecofining process is used in most 100 pct biofeed units producing renewable diesel worldwide. UOP currently has licensed 20 Ecofining units in nine countries processing 12 different types of renewable feedstocks, according to the compamy release.
