Refuel Energy to construct renewable fuel plant in Ontario

Refuel Energy Inc. (Refuel) has announced plans to construct a 3,000 barrel-per-day renewable fuel plant in Southern Ontario, Canada.

The proposed project, called Refuel YYZ, would supply the aviation and terrestrial fuel needs of the Greater Toronto area, home to 6 million Canadians, while lowering the CO2 emissions for the end users by up to 80%. It is also strategically located for exporting to the U.S. Northeast.

The plant would utilize Haldor Topsoeโ€™s proprietary HydroFlexTM and H2bridgeTM technologies for the production of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Planned feedstocks include a mix of waste fats, oils and greases, such as regionally-sourced used cooking oil, animal fats and non-edible crop oils.

โ€œWe are very pleased that Refuel has selected our HydroFlexโ„ข and H2bridgeโ„ข technologies for this state-of-the-art, standalone renewable diesel and SAF facility. Our market-leading technologies are complementary and together they will produce some of the lowest carbon intensity renewable fuels in the world,โ€ says Henrik Rasmussen, managing director, Americas, Topsoe.

โ€œThis is an important milestone in the development of Refuel YYZ. We are thrilled to be building such a strong team with Topsoe and Fluor to produce our renewable fuels, ensuring a successful project execution,โ€ said Zohrab Mawani, director and co-founder of Refuel. โ€œThere is much exciting news to share as we continue development and get closer to a low carbon future.โ€

Refuel expects to make a final investment decision in 2023. If approved, production at the new facility would start in 2025.
