Future-proof your refinery with HydroFlex™ so you can turn almost any feedstock into high-grade HVO-100 diesel. Blending HVO-100 diesel with fossil diesel decreases sulphur content and raises the cetane number. So you can meet today’s legislative and market demands for clean diesel.
Future-proof your refinery
HydroFlex™ can deliver a single-unit, high-CAPEX solution for EN-590 diesel. But to meet more demanding legislation and a broader range of applications, the ability to produce HVO-100 diesel will offer you more business opportunities, especially in Europe. This requires more processing, including a dewaxing phase.
The good news is that you can revamp your existing single-unit solution to produce HVO-100. Not only that, but your new unit will then be capable of producing either HVO-100 or EN-590 diesel by changing a few simple settings.
But, is it worth the investment? The short answer is ‘yes’. Driven by legislation, market demand for HVO-100 diesel is growing. This is pushing up the value per barrel, especially in Europe where legislation is currently most demanding. US legislation is expected to develop along similar lines, making HVO-100 renewable diesel one of the most profitable fuels worldwide.
Although the legislation concerning renewable feedstock is relatively recent, we are ready to help you meet the demand for modern, high-grade biofuels today. With HydroFlex™, you can produce renewable gasoline, jet fuel and diesel from almost any feedstock, including tall oil, used cooking oil, animal fats and vegetable oils.
The process is complex, very different to refining non-renewable fuels and requires a substantial investment. But it is also profitable.Get the full story
