ECB Group to use UOP Ecofining process at Paraguay megaproject

April 5, 2021 |

In Paraguay, Honeywell announced that Brazil-based ECB Group will use the UOP Ecofining process to convert vegetable oils and inedible animal fats into renewable diesel and jet fuel at the Omega Green production facility in Villeta, near Asuncion, Paraguay. This marks the first advanced biofuels project in Paraguay, as well as the largest private investment in the country’s history.

Honeywell UOP was selected to provide technology and engineering services for the project, which will produce fuels that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, including renewable diesel and aviation jet fuel.

Honeywell UOP has designed the Omega Green project to minimize fossil CO2 emissions at the site by using the renewable LPG and naphtha produced in the UOP Ecofining unit to self-sustain the process in energy and hydrogen. In partnership with Wood, a global consulting and engineering company, Honeywell UOP will integrate Wood’s hydrogen plant technology with the Ecofining unit design to produce hydrogen from renewable feedstocks. This will further reduce the overall carbon intensity of the Honeywell Green Diesel™ and Honeywell Green Jet Fuel ™.
