Honeywell Green Diesel to be produced from biofeedstocks in U.S. facility  

By Gerald Ondrey |

UOP LLC (Des Plaines, Ill.; www.uop.com), a Honeywell company, announced today that it has signed an agreement to license technology to Emerald Biofuels LLC to produce Honeywell Green Diesel at a facility in Louisiana.     Emerald is expected to use UOP’s Eni Ecofining process technology to produce 85-million gal/yr of Honeywell Green Diesel from non-edible, second-generation oils and animal fats. Unlike biodiesel, Honeywell Green Diesel is a drop-in replacement for traditional diesel. Chemically identical to petroleum-based diesel, Honeywell Green Diesel can be used in any proportion in existing fuel tanks without infrastructure changes. Emerald is an Illinois-based transportation fuel company that focuses on building renewable diesel refineries that produce environmentally friendly transportation fuels at prices competitive to petroleum-based fuels. International Alliance Group (IAG) will provide engineering, procurement and construction services for the project. UOP and Eni S.p.A. (Milan, Italy) jointly developed the UOP/Eni Ecofining process, which uses hydroprocessing technology to convert non-edible natural oils and animal fats to Honeywell Green Diesel (See also Chem.
