Previously signing an engineering agreeent with Haldor Topsoe for its renewable diesel production technology in 2017, it appears that St1 will opt for Honeywell UOP's Ecofining technology instead. The capacity of this upgrade will also increase to 4,000 barrels per day, producing both renewable diesel and biojet fuel. While major renewable diesel producers continue to expand production capacity, activity among traditional refiners has continued to pick up in the past two years. While opting for the Ecofining technology is a safe choice given the numerous commercial projects that exist today, the decision to not go with Haldor Topsoe casts a small bit of doubt on other projects, such as SkyNRG's 100,000 MT facility in the Netherlands.
