Processing renewable feedstocks is complex. They can be converted to biofuels in many different ways, with a wide range of feedstocks. Because of this diversity, unit design is crucial – as is selecting and loading the right catalysts.
Today, most countries have restrictions on how much biodiesel can be blended into diesel, since the properties of fossil and biodiesel are not identical.
In the US, RFS2 (Renewable Fuel Standard 2) requires refineries to blend 36 billion gallons of renewable fuel into the country's total transportation fuels consumption by 2022. In Europe, RED (Renewable Energy Directive) requires all EU countries to ensure that at least 10% of their transport fuels come from renewable fuel sources by 2020. This has led many refiners to revamp their biodiesel production plants and use processes like our HydroFlex™ solution.
