Our HydroFlexTM solution is designed to produce diesel based on renewable feedstock, with a minimal Carbon Intensity (CI score) compared to traditional diesel,” says Henrik Rasmussen, Managing Director, The Americas, Haldor Topsoe.
“We have chosen Haldor Topsoe’s market-leading HydroFlex™ technology for this exceptional project that will allow us to lead the energy transition economy beginning in the Pacific Northwest.

What is HydroFlex™
With HydroFlex™, customers can convert low value feedstocks to renewable fuels that qualify for Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credits. The innovative HydroFlex™ process layout offers lower capital expenditure (CAPEX), but also a lower energy consumption during operation, resulting in a lower Carbon Index (CI). Topsoe’s HydroFlex™ can be deployed in both grassroots units and revamps for co-processing or stand-alone applications.
