Repsol selects Honeywell technology for biofuel production in Spain
Repsol is designing the plant to convert approximately 240,000 metric tons per annum (KMTA) of waste feeds/feedstocks 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.
“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% 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% renewable diesel.”
“Honeywell’s Ecofining technology will allow Repsol to economically convert waste feeds into renewable fuels and reduce its carbon footprint,” said Barry Glickman, vice-president and general manager, Honeywell Sustainable Technology Solutions.
The Honeywell UOP Ecofining™ process, developed in conjunction with Eni, can convert plant-based waste oils, animal fats and other waste feedstocks to renewable diesel and SAF.
