Honeywell UOP eFining™ can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 88% compared to conventional jet fuel.1Talk To an expert
To reconcile the growing demand for air travel with increasing calls for decarbonization, the world needs greater and faster access to sustainable aviation fuel. Honeywell UOP eFiningTM technology enables rapid access to one of the most abundant renewable feedstocks on earth: CO2.
Produced using renewable energy, the combination of captured CO2 and hydrogen generates eFuel, or electrofuel, a lower carbon intensity alternative to traditional fuels. In the case of UOP eFining, eMethanol is used to create jet fuel that is ready to use today.
As a trailblazer in renewable fuel technology, Honeywell UOP enables broad flexibility of feedstock supplies for sustainable aviation fuel, diesel and other renewable fuels. Leveraging 37 years of combined operating experience in methanol to olefins conversion, Honeywell UOP eFining is the latest in a line of technologies driving decarbonization in the aviation sector. Honeywell UOP offers multiple routes to market using a variety of feedstocks, including Ecofining™ technology (utilizing fats, oils and greases), the recently launched ethanol to jet technology and UOP eFining using eMethanol from green hydrogen and recycled CO2.
Honeywell UOP eFining provides a reliable, scalable and economical solution for customers who aim to produce eFuels that meet CO2 reduction and fuel sustainability targets while also taking advantage of available government incentives.2
eFuels have the potential to significantly reduce emissions from aviation.1 Renewable energy sources power the conversion of CO2 and hydrogen into liquid eFuels that are sustainable, high-performing and can be implemented into existing aircraft without requiring major modifications to engines or infrastructure.
✔ Low carbon intensity jet fuel
✔ High SAF yield and selectivity
✔ Minimized CAPEX and plot space
✔ Scalable process with high operational reliability
✔ Highly integrated design
✔ High-efficiency equipment
✔ Modular units available to accelerate execution
✔ Unmatched commercial and R&D experience
While Honeywell is an industry leader in methanol to olefins processing with demonstrated oligomerization and hydrogenation technologies, our unmatched commercial and R&D experience and commitment to creating a sustainable future also extend to the following areas:
Honeywell today announced its innovative, new, UOP eFining™ technology, a ready-now solution for producing low-carbon sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). HIF Global, the world’s leading eFuels company, intends to deploy the new technology to produce eSAF at its second U.S. eFuels facility.Learn More
1 Reduced GHG emissions is based on UOP carbon intensity analysis, derived from a 3rd-party study of bio-methanol production from green hydrogen and CO2 captured from biomass processing, in comparison to fossil fuels.
2 Fuel sustainability targets and government incentives refer to the EU’s RefuelEU Aviation initiative, which targets 6% of aviation fuel supply from SAF and 1.2% of supply from eSAF by 2030, and to the US Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) legislation, which provides incentives for SAF.
