Working closely with you, Topsoe tailors HydroFlex™ to the layout of your plant, your intended range of feedstocks, and the specifications of the renewable fuels you aim to produce. Renewable feedstocks, for example, all require dewaxing to optimize the cold flow properties of the resulting fuels.
Since 2004, we have been running dedicated research and development programs into renewable feedstocks for the refinery industry. The processes involved are complex enough. But that is only the beginning. Feedstocks vary in quality and availability depending on where you are in the world. So, you need an approach to hydro-processing and dewaxing that is flexible and capable of running as an integral part of your existing refinery.
Whether you are refining in sweet or sour mode, we take care of every catalyst selection and specification. So, your HydroFlex™ unit produces an optimal yield, free from contaminants such as potassium, sodium and silicon. Or, put another way, your unit will produce exceptionally clean renewable fuel with a high market value – and the opportunity to raise the profitability of your business.
Because Topsoe invests 9% of our annual revenue in R&D, we are able to carry out market-driven research into catalysis and process technologies – including renewables. Our aim is always to introduce new technologies, solutions and applications that anticipate changing legislation and market trends in the refinery industry.
We are currently participating in several external research partnerships that focus on identifying the most sustainable and economically competitive technology to transform solid feedstocks into liquid which can then be hydroprocessed with our HydroFlex™ technology.
Topsoe Renewables is helping a number of major players in the refinery industry introduce full feedstock flexibility to their operations. And the list is growing. If you’d like to hear more about our projects, you can contact us using the form below.
