ExxonMobil introduces its renewable diesel technology for licensing

September 1, 2021 |

In Texas, ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing LLC has introduced ExxonMobil Renewable Diesel process technology to help meet the evolving needs for mobility, while utilizing renewable feedstock. This new process technology converts feedstocks including, but not limited to, vegetable oils, unconverted cooking oil and animal fats, into renewable diesel.

Meets advanced cold-flow specifications, while enabling high yields through use of the BIDW™ dewaxing catalyst technology

Offers superior performance through a two-stage process versus a one-stage process

The EMRD process is a two-stage process in which hydrotreating and dewaxing are controlled separately. Compared to a single-stage process, this approach provides higher diesel yields and superior control. Additionally, the EMRD process provides the potential to produce jet fuel as a secondary product with added fractionation.

The EMRD process is an integrated solution that leverages ExxonMobil’s Bio-Isomerization Dewaxing (BIDW™) catalyst. This provides refiners and biofuel producers with powerful dewaxing in both winter and summer modes. Improved yields were demonstrated during testing of BIDW catalyst versus other internally formulated zeolite-based alternatives.
