Total selects Ecofiningâ„˘ process technology to produce renewable fuels
Honeywell today announced Total will use Honeywell UOP Ecofiningâ„˘ process technology to produce renewable fuels, primarily for the aviation industry, at its Grandpuits platform at Seine-et-Marne in north central France.
Honeywell UOP will provide technology licenses, basic engineering, specialty equipment, and catalysts for the project. Once completed, the bio-refinery will process 400,000 tons of feed per year, producing up to 170,000 tons of sustainable aviation fuel, 120,000 tons of renewable diesel and 50,000 tons of renewable naphtha for production of bioplastics.
â€śTotal chose UOPâ€™s Ecofining process to increase its renewable jet fuels production in France,â€ť said Ben Owens, VP and general manager of Honeywellâ€™s Sustainable Technology Solutions business. â€śUOPâ€™s Ecofining process will help Total to convert its Grandpuits refinery into a zero-crude platform that supports government plans to develop fossil fuel substitutes and achieve carbon neutrality.â€ť
According to the Ministry for Ecological Transition, the deployment of sustainable aviation fuels is one of the top priorities of the French government and part of its broader national commitment to tackle climate change. Earlier this year, France announced plans to replace 2% of its fossil-based jet fuel with sustainable aviation fuels by 2025, rising to 5% by 2030 and to 50% by 2050.
Honeywell pioneered the sustainable aviation fuel market with its UOP Ecofining process. Honeywell Green Jet Fuelâ„˘ produced by this process is blended seamlessly with petroleum-based jet fuel at commercial scale. When used in up to a 50% blend with petroleum-based jet fuel, Honeywell Green Jet Fuel requires no changes to aircraft technology and meets all critical specifications for flight.
