Haldor Topsoe’s renewable fuel technology chosen by HollyFrontier
HollyFrontier has chosen Haldor Topsoe’s HydroFlexTM sustainable renewable fuel technology to produce clean renewable diesel from various feedstocks.
The large renewable diesel unit will be located at HollyFrontier’s Artesia refinery in New Mexico, US.
Under the agreement with Artesia Renewable Diesel Company LLC, a subsidiary of HollyFronteir, Topsoe will licence and supply basic engineering, proprietary equipment, catalysts, and technical services. The project is based on HydroFlex technology, which produces renewable fuels such as gasoline, diesel and sustainable aviation fuel, from all renewable feedstocks.
Every year, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets an annual quota for how much biofuel must be blended into gasoline and diesel sold in the US market. Renewable Identification Number (RIN) credits represent a volume of biofuel blended into fossil fuel and are used to ensure compliance with the quota. RIN credits can be traded, so companies that do not produce renewable fuels can buy RIN credits to meet individual quotas of renewable fuel.
Henrik Rasmussen, Vice President of Haldor Topsoe commented: “Haldor Topsoe is very proud that HollyFrontier has chosen HydroFlex for its strategic expansion into renewable fuels.”
