  • Blended with conventional jet fuel, SAF can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 80% compared to conventional fossil fuels
  • Out of the 50 licenses granted, eight facilities are already operational, with over 40 licensed plants scheduled to come online by 2030

In order to achieve efficient production of a targeted 20,000 barrels per day of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and renewable diesel, Acelen Renewables has chosen Honeywell’s Ecofining™ technology.

The fuels will be processed at Acelen’s facility in Bahia, Brazil, from a blend of inedible seed and waste oils.

Honeywell’s Ecofining process has been made in collaboration with Eni SpA, which provides a capital- and cost-effective solution for processing waste fats, oils and greases into renewable diesel and SAF.

Blended with conventional jet fuel, SAF can reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by up to 80% compared to conventional fossil fuels.

Since 2013 for renewable diesel and 2016 for SAF production, Ecofining has demonstrated its effectiveness in reducing carbon dioxide (CO[^2]) emissions, especially in aviation.

Acelen Renewables now joins a global roster of companies licensing Honeywell’s renewable fuels technology, alongside BP, CVR Energy, Diamond Green Diesel, Eni, Repsol, Total, and World Energy.

Out of the 50 licenses granted, eight facilities are already operational, with over 40 licensed plants scheduled to come online by 2030. These combined renewable fuel facilities, operating at peak efficiency, are set to surpass 500,000 barrels per day in capacity.

 “The addition of Honeywell’s Ecofining process is essential for us to meet our goal of producing one billion litres of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation kerosene (SAF) per year from 2026 onwards, which will make our company one of the largest biofuel producers in the world.

“Through our ‘fully sustainable’ project – economically, socially and environmentally responsible, we will show the world Brazil’s full capacity to produce the fuel of the future,” said Marcelo Cordaro, COO of Acelen Renewables.
