As regulation and consumer demand shifts toward renewable products, the demand for non-fossil feedstocks is increasing. Now, refiners can get value from a product that they are already producing: Renewable Naphtha.
Add value to your operation
Renewable naphtha is an intermediary product that converts to gasoline, plastics, or feedstock for hydrogen production– and it is a byproduct that refineries already produce when they convert renewable feedstock into diesel. In the past, renewable naphtha production decreased due to low prices and low demand. But recently, there has been an uptick in demand and cost.
Renewable naphtha can be used as:
Renewable Naphtha can also be converted into aromatics, which can, in turn, create plastic. EU regulations and consumer demands have led to increasing demand for plastics from non-fossil sources, making naphtha an increasingly valuable resource.
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
HydroFlex™ gives you access to a portfolio of 25 catalysts specific to processing renewable feedstocks. With our design and processing knowhow, we’ll help you select the optimal combination of catalysts for the renewable feedstocks available to your refinery.
