Repsol selects Honeywell Ecofining™ Technology for Biofuel Production in Spain
Honeywell announced today that Repsol has licensed Honeywell Ecofining™ technology to produce renewable fuels from feedstocks such as used cooking oil and waste animal fat at Repsol’s facility in Puertollano, Spain. Repsol is designing this plant to convert approximately 240 thousand metric tons per annum (KMTA) of waste feeds/feedstocks to renewable diesel and other products.
The Honeywell UOP Ecofining™ process will provide Repsol with an efficient and high yield solution to produce renewable fuels and petrochemical precursors from residual feedstocks.
“Renewable fuels are a key pillar in our commitment to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 and Honeywell is providing us with the cutting-edge Ecofining technology to accomplish this,” said Berta Cabello, Repsol's Director of Renewable Fuels. “This will be Repsol's second plant exclusively dedicated to producing 100% renewable fuels, allowing us to lead the market for these products in the Iberian Peninsula where we already have more than 20 service stations supplying 100% renewable diesel.”
“Honeywell’s Ecofining technology will allow Repsol to economically convert waste feeds into renewable fuels and reduce its carbon footprint,” said Barry Glickman, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Sustainable Technology Solutions. “Renewable Diesel and SAF can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional diesel or aviation fuel.”
The Honeywell UOP Ecofining™ process, developed in conjunction with Eni SpA, can convert plant-based waste oils, animal fats and other waste feedstocks to renewable diesel and SAF.
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.
Honeywell recently committed to achieve carbon neutrality in its operations and facilities by 2035. This commitment builds on the company’s track record of sharply reducing the greenhouse gas intensity of its operations and facilities as well as its decades-long history of innovation to help its customers meet their environmental and social goals. About 60% of Honeywell’s 2022 new product introduction research and development investment was directed toward ESG-oriented outcomes for customers.1
Repsol is a global multi-energy company that is leading the energy transition with its ambition of achieving zero net emissions by 2050. The company is transforming its seven industrial complexes in Spain, Portugal, and Peru into multi-energy hubs through state-of-the-art projects that will reduce their carbon footprint and will enable the company to be a benchmark in the production of renewable fuels and renewable hydrogen by 2030.
