In Canada, renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) project developer Refuel Energy Inc. (Refuel) has that planning is underway for the construction of a 3000 barrel-per-day (bpd) renewable fuel plant in Southern Ontario.
Dubbed Refuel YYZ, the proposed facility would supply the aviation and terrestrial fuel needs of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), home to 6 million Canadians while lowering the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions for the end-users by up to 80 percent.
Refuel YYZ is also strategically located for exporting to the US Northeast.
Utilize Haldor Topsøe technology
The plant would utilize Haldor Topsøe’s proprietary “HydroFlex and “H2bridge” technologies for the production of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
We are very pleased that Refuel has selected Topsøe’s HydroFlex and H2bridge technologies for this state-of-the-art, standalone renewable diesel and SAF facility. Our market-leading technologies are complementary and together they will produce some of the lowest carbon intensity renewable fuels in the world, said Henrik Rasmussen, Managing Director, The Americas at Haldor Topsøe.
Planned feedstocks include a mix of waste fats, oils, and greases (FOG), such as regionally sourced used cooking oil (UCO), animal fats, and non-edible crop oils.
Fluor Corporation is the contractor for Refuel YYZ and will be providing front-end engineering and design (FEED) services, as well as detailed engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) support.
This is an important milestone in the development of Refuel YYZ. We are thrilled to be building such a strong team with Topsøe and Fluor to produce our renewable fuels, ensuring a successful project execution, said Zohrab Mawani, Director and Co-Founder of Refuel.
The company expects to make a final investment decision in 2023. If approved, production at the new facility would start in 2025.
There is much exciting news to share as we continue development and get closer to a low carbon future, ended Zohrab Mawani.
