Honeywell’s UOP Forms Unit to Speed Biofuel Commercialization

Des Plaines, Illinois [] UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, established a new business unit, called Renewable Energy and Chemicals, to accelerate UOP’s already existing efforts to develop renewable energy technologies by developing profitable ways refineries can use UOP’s petroleum processing technologies to convert bio-feedstocks, such as vegetable oils, greases and certain waste products, into fuel and chemicals. UOP received funding from the U.S. Department of Energy in 2004 for a study that identified a number of opportunities for biorenewables in petroleum refineries. UOP collaborated on this project with DOE’s National Renewable Energy Lab. UOP’s Renewable Energy and Chemicals unit also plans to identify and evaluate technologies for refineries that use other renewable energy sources.
