Honeywell announced Oct. 3 that Repsol has licensed Honeywell Ecofining™ technology to produce renewable fuels from feedstocks such as used cooking oil and waste animal fat at Repsol’s facility in Puertollano, Spain.



Repsol is designing this plant to convert approximately 240,000 metric tons per year of feedstock to renewable diesel and other products.



The Honeywell UOP Ecofining™ process will provide Repsol with an efficient and high-yield solution to produce renewable fuels and petrochemical precursors from residual feedstocks, Honeywell stated.



“Renewable fuels are a key pillar in our commitment to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, and Honeywell is providing us with the cutting-edge Ecofining technology to accomplish this,” said Berta Cabello, Repsol’s director of renewable fuels. “This will be Repsol’s second plant exclusively dedicated to producing 100 percent renewable fuels, allowing us to lead the market for these products in the Iberian Peninsula where we already have more than 20 service stations supplying 100 percent renewable diesel.”



Barry Glickman, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Sustainable Technology Solutions, added, “Honeywell’s Ecofining technology will allow Repsol to economically convert waste feeds into renewable fuels and reduce its carbon footprint. Renewable Diesel and SAF can significantly reduce greenhouse-gas emissions compared to conventional diesel or aviation fuel.”



The Honeywell UOP Ecofining™ process, developed in conjunction with Italian energy company Eni, can convert plant-based waste oils, animal fats and other waste feedstocks to renewable diesel and SAF.



Honeywell said it now offers solutions across a range of feedstocks to meet the rapidly growing demand for renewable fuels, including SAF.



In addition to Honeywell UOP Ecofining, Honeywell’s renewable fuels portfolio includes ethanol-to-jet technology and the recently announced Honeywell UOP eFining™, which converts green hydrogen and carbon dioxide into eFuels.



Honeywell recently committed to achieve carbon neutrality in its operations and facilities by 2035.



“This commitment builds on the company’s track record of sharply reducing the greenhouse-gas intensity of its operations and facilities as well as its decades-long history of innovation to help its customers meet their environmental and social goals,” the company stated.



About 60 percent of Honeywell’s 2022 new product introduction research and development investment was directed toward ESG-oriented outcomes for customers, according to Honeywell.



Repsol is a global energy company with ambition of achieving net-zero emissions by 2050.



The company is transforming its seven industrial complexes in Spain, Portugal and Peru into multi-energy hubs through projects that will reduce their carbon footprint and “enable the company to be a benchmark in the production of renewable fuels and renewable hydrogen by 2030,” Honeywell stated.
