“We are thrilled that Phillips 66 has chosen Topsoe’s HydroFlex™ technology for the production of renewable diesel at the Rodeo Refinery. This market-leading technology will provide Phillips 66 with a very low carbon intensity diesel fuel,” says Henrik Rasmussen, Managing Director, The Americas, Haldor Topsoe.
With HydroFlex™, customers can convert low value feedstocks to renewable fuels that qualify for the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credit. 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.
