Spanish energy company Repsol has licensed Honeywell’s Ecofining technology to produce renewable fuels at its facility in Puertollano.

The plant would convert up to 240,000 tonnes tonnes/year of waste feedstocks, such as used cooking oil (UCO) and animal fats, into renewable diesel and other products using the Ecofining process, Honeywell said on 3 October.

“This will be Repsol’s second plant exclusively dedicated to producing 100% renewable fuels,” Repsol’s Director of Renewable Fuels Berta Cabello said.

Developed in conjunction with Eni SpA, Honeywell’s UOP Ecofining process converts plant-based waste oils, animal fats and other waste feedstocks into renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

As part of its aim to achieve zero net emissions by 2050, Repsol is transforming its seven industrial complexes in Spain, Portugal and Peru into multi-energy hubs to produce renewable fuels and renewable hydrogen.
