Honeywell's UOP Green Fuels Technology Selected By Petrixo
July 10, 2014
Honeywell's UOP green fuels process technology was selected by Petrixo Oil & Gas to produce renewable jet fuel and diesel at a new refinery to be built in Fujairah, United Arab Emirates. This will be the first commercial-scale, renewable jet fuel production facility outside of North America.
Petrixo will use UOP Renewable Jet Fuel process technology to convert approximately 500,000 metric tons per year of renewable feedstocks into renewable jet fuel and renewable diesel, also known as Honeywell Green Jet FuelTM and Honeywell Green DieselTM. The process technology is capable of converting a variety of renewable feedstocks.
Petrixo announced earlier this year that it will invest $800 million to build the new refinery, which will have a design capacity of 1 million tons per year of biofuel products.
