ST1 Nordic Licenses Honeywell Ecofining Technology in Sweden

Source: 9/19/2019, Location: Europe

Honeywell announced that St1 Nordic Oy (Helsinki, Finland) has licensed the UOP’s Ecofining renewable fuels technology to produce 4,000 barrels per day of diesel and jet fuel integrated with its refinery complex in Gothenburg, Sweden. Basic engineering design for the project has already been completed.

The Ecofining process converts inedible oils and other waste feedstocks into Honeywell Green Diesel. Unlike biodiesel, this high-quality renewable diesel is chemically identical to petroleum-based diesel and can be used as a drop-in replacement in vehicles with no modifications. It also features up to an 80% lifecycle reduction in greenhouse gas emissions compared with diesel from petroleum.

The markets in which St1 operates have among the most ambitious targets in the world for renewable fuels. This is the primary driver of investment in renewable diesel production at St1.

“The objective of our renewable fuels strategy is to meet the ambitious 2030 climate targets in our home markets of Finland, Sweden and Norway, and we chose UOP’s Ecofining technology to achieve that goal,” says Bo-Erik Svensson, managing director, St1 Refinery. “A key area for us is significantly reducing the CO2 emissions of transportation fuels from own production.”

“While developing regulations might create some uncertainty about the types of feedstocks that can be used to make renewable diesel, the Ecofining process can accommodate a wide variety of feedstocks,” says Bryan Glover, vice president and general manager of Honeywell UOP’s Petrochemicals & Refining Technologies business. “These include a variety of waste products such as used vegetable oils, animal fats, and tall oils derived from forestry residues.”
