Indaba Renewable Fuels (Indaba) will build two greenfield refineries in California and Missouri to produce Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) employing Topsoe’sHydroFlex technology.
The facilities are expected to start production of SAF in 2024. The capacity of the plants is 6500 barrels/day at each location.
Topsoe will also provide H2bridge hydrogen technology for both facilities that further replace fossil fuels with renewable liquids like LPG or naphtha to lower the carbon intensity of the products.
The solution enables Indaba’s facilities to accept a wide variety of feedstocks and the production of multiple low carbon Index (CI) renewable fuels.
Henrik Rasmussen, MD at Haldor Topsoe Inc, said, “Our HydroFlex™ solution is designed to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) based on renewable feedstock, with a minimal Carbon Intensity (CI score) compared to traditional petroleum aviation fuel.”
Geoff Hirson, CEO of Indaba Renewable Fuels, added, “We are thrilled to select Haldor Topsoe’s market-leading HydroFlex™ technology for these projects that will enable us to lead the aviation industry’s transition to sustainable and low emissions fuel.”
Meanwhile, Haldor Topsoe also signs a €45 million loan agreement with European Investment Bank to support research into innovative green hydrogen technologies that can reduce carbon emissions. Financing will also back Haldor Topsoe’s R&D investments in new catalysts, catalytic technologies, and innovative hydrogen technologies.
