Refuel Energy lets contracts for proposed Ontario renewable fuels plant

Energy transition

Refuel Energy Inc. has let a contract to Topsøe AS (formerly Haldor Topsøe AS) to deliver process technology for a grassroots, standalone renewable fuels production plant to be built in southern Ontario, Canada.

As part of the contract, Topsøe will license its proprietary HydroFlex and H2bridge technologies to enable the proposed 3,000-b/d plant’s processing of a feedstock mix that would include waste fats, oils, and greases—such as regionally-sourced used cooking oil, animal fats, and nonedible crop oils—into sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel, the service provider said.

To be known as Refuel YYZ, the proposed project—which could lower carbon-dioxide (CO2) emissions for end users by up to 80%—would supply its SAF and renewable diesel production to meet demand in the Greater Toronto area, as well as be available for potential export into markets in the north-eastern US, according to Refuel Energy and Topsoe.

In a separate release on April 19, Refuel Energy confirmed it has also let a contract to Fluor Corp. to provide front-end engineering and design (FEED) services, as well as detailed engineering, procurement, and construction management (EPCM) support for the Refuel YYZ project.

Scheduled for final investment decision (FID) in 2023, Refuel YYZ, if approved, would begin commercial production in 2025, Refuel Energy said.

The proposed renewable fuels production plant comes as part of Refuel Energy’s broader strategy to become an early producer and supplier of renewable diesel and SAF products to the Canadian market and a key contributor to Canada’s emissions-reduction goals in line with the energy transition and decarbonisation of the transportation sector.
