Topsoe technology supports HF Sinclair’s renewable diesel production in US

Topsoe, a global leader in carbon emission reduction technologies, announced July 4 that it was selected by HF Sinclair as a technology provider for its production of renewable diesel at three facilities in Sinclair and Cheyenne, Wyoming, and Artesia, New Mexico.

The units in Cheyenne (252,000 gallons per day) and Sinclair (420,000 gallons per day) are from the conversion of petroleum-refinery assets whereas the Artesia (378,000 gallons per day) unit is a grassroots renewable facility.

All three facilities have now successfully been put into operation and deliver renewable diesel into the U.S. transportation market.

These facilities utilize Topsoe’s HydroFlex™ technology for the conversion of waste and biobased feedstock into renewable diesel.

“We are excited to deliver technology for the production of highly sought-after low-carbon fuels to the U.S. transportation markets,” said Henrik Rasmussen, Topsoe’s managing director for the Americas. “It’s a pleasure collaborating with HF Sinclair on these very successful projects.”

Valerie Pompa, HF Sinclair’s executive vice president of operations, added, “HF Sinclair is now one the largest producers of renewable fuels in the United States. By implementing Topsoe’s carbon emission reduction technology, HydroFlex™, at three of our facilities, we are able to further advance our sustainability efforts.”

Renewable diesel is a low-carbon fuel made from renewable sources that is chemically identical to regular petroleum diesel.

It produces less greenhouse-gas emissions while performing the same as regular petroleum diesel.

Renewable diesel can be used as a drop-in fuel without modification to engines or infrastructure.

Renewable fuels are made from waste, animal fats and used cooking oils, as well as organic materials such as soybean oils.

With HydroFlex™, customers can convert low-value feedstocks into drop-in renewable jet and diesel that meets all of the globally accepted specifications for these fuels.

The innovative HydroFlex™ process layout offers lower capital expenditure (capex), but also a lower energy consumption during operation, resulting in a lower carbon intensity (CI).

Topsoe’s HydroFlex™ can be deployed in both grassroots units and revamps for coprocessing or standalone applications.

“HydroFlex™ is by far the most successful renewable fuels technology globally,” Topsoe stated.
