October 26, 2023 [Hydrocarbon Engineering]- Honeywell has announced the availability of technologies and digital solutions to enable customers in Asia Pacific to produce renewable fuels from multiple sources of renewable feedstocks.
Refiners are facing market changes as the drive toward sustainability accelerates to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. It is imperative for companies to adopt ready now technologies that can help them produce low-carbon, sustainable fuels while maximising available resources, reducing waste, and meeting their sustainability goals.
To help customers address this challenge and the rapidly growing demand for renewable fuels, Honeywell UOP offers solutions that enable the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), renewable diesel, and other renewable fuels from a broad range of potential renewable feedstock sources. Honeywell’s renewable fuels portfolio includes:
- Honeywell Ecofining™ is a proven technology that has been used around the world for years. It produces SAF, which helps reduce GHG emissions when compared to emissions from fossil fuels.
- Ethanol to Jet fuel (ETJ): jet fuel produced from Honeywell’s ETJ process can reduce GHG emissions compared to petroleum-based jet fuel.
- Honeywell UOP eFining™ converts eMethanol to eSAF reliably and at scale.
- Rapid Thermal Processing (RTP™) converts biomass feedstocks into renewable fuels for heating, power, and transportation.
“As a leader in renewable fuel technology, Honeywell recognises that creating technologies to enable operators to produce low-carbon fuels from multiple renewable feedstock options is vital to long-term decarbonisation across Asia Pacific,” said Matt Spalding, VPGM Honeywell UOP APAC. “The ability to use various feedstocks is a transformational opportunity for this market. With UOP eFining™, Ecofining, ETJ and RTP technologies, Honeywell offers multiple routes to market to meet the rapidly growing demand for renewable fuels.”
In addition to supporting new assets, Honeywell also has the expertise to help retrofit existing refineries for renewable fuel production. This offers lower capital investment opportunities with a fast and cost-effective route to renewable fuels.
To support these objectives, Honeywell provides comprehensive digital solutions, featuring cyber-secure hardware and software technologies designed for day-one readiness, scalability, and seamless integration with legacy systems.
“With Honeywell’s experience in process control and automation, coupled with our strategic partnerships with process technology licensors, we are pioneering the next generation, digital refinery of the future,” said Tathagata Basu, General Manager, Refining & Petrochemical Vertical Market, Honeywell Process Solutions.
