Honeywell has announced that BP has selected its ecofining technology to help support the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at five BP facilities across the globe.
The 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
- Kwinana Oil refinery in Kwinana, Australia
Ecofining is a proven, ready-now technology and provides BP a capital and cost-efficient solution to increase its SAF production from renewable feeds.
It will help BP achieve its aim to supply 20% of the SAF market globally by 2030.
Nigel Dunn, SVP biofuels growth, BP: ‘BP has an established global biofuels business that is positioned for rapid growth utilising 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.’
‘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. Honeywell helped pioneer SAF production with its ecofining process, which has been used to produce SAF commercially since 2016,’ adds Lucian Boldea, president and CEO of Honeywell performance materials and technologies.
