Haldor Topsoe is supporting Indaba Renewable Fuels in the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Indaba Renewable Fuels (Indaba) is building two greenfield refineries in California and Missouri to produce SAF utilising Topsoe’sHydroFlex  technology.
The facilities are expected to begin production of SAF in 2024  with the capacity of the plants standing at 6,500 barrels per day at each location.
Topsoe will also provide its H2bridge hydrogen technology for both facilities that further replaces fossil fuels with renewable liquids like LPG or naphtha to lower the carbon intensity of the products.
“We are excited to provide Indaba with refining technology and catalysts as they initiate production of renewable fuels in the United States. Our HydroFlex solution is designed to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) based on renewable feedstock, with a minimal Carbon Intensity (CI score) compared to traditional petroleum aviation fuel,” said Henrik Rasmussen, managing director, The Americas, Haldor Topsoe.
“We are thrilled to select Haldor Topsoe’s market-leading HydroFlex™ technology for these projects that will enable us to lead the aviation industry’s transition to sustainable and low emissions fuel. These projects will source feedstocks from waste products to create low carbon emission SAF for decades,” added Geoff Hirson, CEO of Indaba Renewable Fuels.
