Sulzer Chemtech to supply BIoFlux technology to Malaysian SAF and HVO project

March 9, 2022 |

In Malaysia, Sulzer Chemtech will provide a BioFlux technology package to support the creation of the Sabah Maju Jaya Renewable Energy Industrial Complex (SMJREIC) in Malaysia. This new state-of-the-art facility will produce sustainable fuels with limited greenhouse gases emissions by using locally-sourced, renewable feedstock. By leveraging Sulzer Chemtech’s leading expertise in innovative licensed technologies, the new plant located at Sapangar Bay, Kota Kinabalu, will deliver an annual production capacity of 250,000 metric tons.

Vandelay Ventures Sdn Bhd has preselected Sulzer Chemtech (GTC Technology) to be the preferred process technology provider for the main processes at the ambitious 10,000 m2 processing complex in Kota Kinabalu. This will utilize plant-based oils for the production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), renewable diesel (HVO) and renewable naphtha as a byproduct. More precisely, the SMJREIC’s infrastructure will rely on the proprietary BioFlux technology offered by Sulzer Chemtech in cooperation with Duke Technologies for the conversion of various pretreated feedstocks to either HVO or SAF while generating much lower emissions than conventional processes.

The unit will complement the centralized edible oil bulking terminal, which will have an annual capacity of 30,000 tons, and supply high-quality feed the HVO/SAF plant, with capacity of 250,000 tons per year. In addition to this key technology, Sulzer Chemtech will provide engineering services as well as installation, commissioning and startup support.
