bp to use Honeywell's ecofining technology to Increase SAF production

Honeywell technology to be deployed at five new sustainable aviation fuel projects across the U.S., Australia, and Europe

  • By ICN Bureau | June 02, 2023

Honeywell announced that bp selected Honeywell's Ecofining technology to help support the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at five bp facilities across the globe.

Honeywell UOP Ecofining technology will be installed at the following bp sites: Cherry Point refinery in Blaine, Washington; Rotterdam II refinery in Rotterdam, Netherlands; Lingen refinery in Lower Saxony, Germany; Castellón de la Plana refinery in Castellón, Spain and Kwinana Oil refinery in Kwinana, Australia.

Ecofining is a proven, ready-now technology, and its simplified design provides bp a capital and cost-efficient solution to increase bp's SAF production from renewable feeds. It will help bp achieve its aim to supply 20% of the SAF market globally by 2030.

"bp has an established global biofuels business that is positioned for rapid growth utilizing Honeywell's technology. The world's demand for SAF is set to increase dramatically and bp seeks to play an important role in helping the airlines to decarbonise," said Nigel Dunn, senior vice president biofuels growth, bp.

"Demand for Ecofining has more than doubled in the last two years, and Honeywell has now licensed 35 Ecofining plants around the world with a total production capacity in excess of 400,000 barrels per day," said Lucian Boldea, president and CEO of Honeywell Performance Materials and Technologies. "Honeywell helped pioneer SAF production with its Ecofining process, which has been used to produce SAF commercially since 2016."

"The Honeywell UOP Ecofining process, developed in conjunction with Eni SpA, converts non-edible natural oils, animal fats and other waste feedstocks to renewable diesel and SAF, and can reduce GHG emissions up to 80% when compared to the emissions from fossil fuels1," added Boldea.

Honeywell 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 e-fuels.
