ABC 2021 – spotlight on commercial pathways
Meet the leading players and experts from around the world, on-site or online, in Stockholm at ABC 2021, September 21-23.
Biofuels – bioliquids, and green gases – are essential in the global effort to replace fossil fuels and reach the Paris Agreement goals of limiting global warming to well below 2 oC compared to pre-industrial levels. As businesses, industries, and societies begin a green recovery in a post-pandemic world, the demand for transportation fuels is expected to rise. Advanced biofuels, and renewable synthetic fuels are together with conventional so-called first-generation biofuels an important and reliable climate-neutral part of the solution, available today – and viable for tomorrow.
With six sessions over two days, the conference will showcase the latest developments and insights in European and international policy, the transition from fossil to renewable fuels and new technologies, investments and partnerships. Leading companies will present solutions with current and new production of advanced biofuels.
Industry perspectives – possibilities and commercialisation
Session 3 “Industry perspectives – possibilities and commercialisation” will feature amongst others Dan Szeezil, Manager Renewable Fuels at Honeywell UOP, a leading international supplier and licensor of process technology, catalysts, adsorbents, equipment, and consultancy services to the petroleum refining, petrochemical, and gas processing industries.
Jointly developed with Italian oil and gas major Eni S.p.A, the UOP Ecofining hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) process is used in numerous renewable diesel plants around the world, and in almost all sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) facilities that use the hydrotreated esters and fatty acids (HEFA) synthetic paraffinic kerosene (SPK) pathway.
To date, UOP has licensed over 20 Ecofining units in nine countries, including Sweden, processing 12 different types of renewable feedstocks. Via Envergent Technologies, Honeywell UOP has also biomass pyrolysis and pyrolysis oil in its portfolio. Earlier this year the company launched a single-stage Ecofining process for renewable diesel, which it says is a fast-to-market, low-capital cost solution for repurposing an existing underutilized hydrotreating or hydrocracking unit at a refinery.
We look forward to meeting you in Stockholm or online
