- Refuel Energy chooses Topsoe solution for renewable fuel facility.
- The facility will be built in Ontario, Canada, and will have a capacity of 3000 barrels per day.
- The produced fuel will supply aviation and terrestrial fuel needs and reduce CO2 emissions for the end users by up to 80%.
Refuel Energy Inc. (Refuel) has announced its plans for the construction of a 3000 barrels per day renewable fuel plant in Southern Ontario, Canada.
The proposed project, called Refuel YYZ, would supply the aviation and terrestrial fuel needs of the Greater Toronto area, home to 6 million Canadians, while lowering the CO2 emissions for the end users by up to 80%. It is also strategically located for exporting to the US Northeast.
The plant would utilize Haldor Topsoe’s proprietary HydroFlexTM and H2bridgeTM technologies for the production of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Planned feedstocks include a mix of waste fats, oils and greases , such as regionally-sourced used cooking oil, animal fats and non-edible crop oils.
“We are very pleased that Refuel has selected our HydroFlex™ and H2bridge™ technologies for this state of the art, standalone renewable diesel and SAF facility. Our market-leading technologies are complementary and together they will produce some of the lowest carbon intensity renewable fuels in the world,” says Henrik Rasmussen, Managing Director, The Americas at Topsoe.
“This is an important milestone in the development of Refuel YYZ. We are thrilled to be building such a strong team with Topsoe and Fluor to produce our renewable fuels, ensuring a successful project execution,” said Zohrab Mawani, director and co-founder of Refuel. “There is much exciting news to share as we continue development and get closer to a low carbon future.”
Refuel expects to make a final investment decision in 2023. If approved, production at the new facility would start in 2025.
