PT Pertamina chooses Topsoe technology for Indonesian refinery
Once complete, the grassroot unit will use its technology to convert bio-feedstock into SAF and renewable diesel - with plans to produce 6,000 bpsd.
This milestone marks the company's 50th HydroFlex™ reference globally.
Alok Verma, managing director, Asia Pacific, Topsoe, said: “We are pleased to continue our close collaboration with Pertamina marking our fifth technology reference with the group.
“This award at the Cilacap refinery is a key milestone for the supply of renewable fuels to the Asia market. It’s a tremendous pleasure working with Pertamina on these very successful projects taking the region towards carbon neutrality.”
Renewable fuels are low-carbon fuels that are chemically identical to regular petroleum diesel or jet fuel but made from renewable sources.
These renewable fuels produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions while performing the same as regular petroleum diesel or jet fuel. They can be used as a drop-in fuel without modification to engines or infrastructure. Renewable fuels are made from waste, animal fats, used cooking oils and organic materials such as soybean oils.
With HydroFlex™, customers can convert low-value feedstocks into drop-in renewable jet and diesel that meet all globally accepted specifications for these fuels.
