A Honeywell firm, UOP LLC, has declared that its UOP/Eni Ecofining process technology is now providing the giant commercial advanced biofuel facility in the US and this has a processing potentiality of 130 million gal./y or renewable diesel.
The facility is a partnership within Darling International and Diamond Alternative Energy LLC, a subsidiary of Valero Energy.
Veronica May, VP and general Manager, Honeywell s UOP Renewable Energy and Chemicals said, "commercial production at the Diamond Green Diesel facility is a significant milestone for the renewable energy industry. UOP has leveraged 100 years of refining technology to make real alternative fuels, including Honeywell Green Diesel and Honeywell Jet Green Fuel , from a range of inedible biofeedstocks."
Randall C. Stuewe, chairman and CEO, Darling said, "the availability of sustainable feedstocks is a key driver for the continued growth of renewable fuels. One of the benefits of the Ecofining process is that the technology is capable of processing a variety of feedstocks collected and manufactured by Darling to produce high quality Green Diesel."
