Calumet selects Haldor Topsoe for renewable diesel project at Montana refinery

September 07/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Calumet plans to revamp its existing hydrocracker in Great Falls, Montana refinery to utilize Haldor Topsoes HydroFlex solution to produce 12,000 barrels per day of renewable diesel, according to Hydrocarbonprocessing.

This is a fast-track project and the revamp will be producing renewable diesel in the spring of 2022.

We are excited to support Calumet as they transition to the production of renewable fuels for the North American markets. Our HydroFlex solution is designed to produce diesel based on renewable feedstock, with a minimal Carbon Intensity (CI score) compared to traditional diesel, says Henrik Rasmussen, Managing Director, The Americas, Haldor Topsoe.

We have chosen Haldor Topsoes market-leading HydroFlex technology for this exceptional project that will allow us to lead the energy transition economy beginning in the Pacific Northwest. This growth project and our vision to source feedstocks locally will create value for the city of Great Falls; Calumet; the state of Montana; and North American low carbon fuel markets, says Bruce Fleming, Executive Vice President, Calumet.

As MRC informed earlier, Haldor Topsoe will build a 15,000-tpy hydroprocessing catalyst plant at the companys existing Bayport production site in Pasadena, Harris County, Texas. The plant will increase production capacity of Topsoes TK catalyst family to meet increasing demand, both in traditional refining and for use with Topsoes HydroFlex technology for production of renewable diesel and jet fuel. The plant is expected to be fully operational in the first half of 2023.

We remind that in 2019, Nizhnekamskneftekhim (NKNKH, part of the TAIF Group, and Haldor Topsoe signed a memorandum of intent to implement a methanol production project.

Haldor Topsoe is a global leader in supply of catalysts, technology, and services to the chemical and refining industries. Topsoe aims to be the global leader within carbon emission reduction technologies by 2024. By perfecting chemistry for a better world, the company enable its customers to succeed in the transition towards renewable energy. Topsoe is headquartered in Denmark and serves customers around the globe. In 2020, the company's revenue was approximately DKK 6.2 billion, and it employs around 2,200 employees.
