Green Crude™ Refining Partnership
Aquaflow has been working closely with UOP, a Honeywell Corporation in the US, to optimise the refining of Green Crude™, a product of algal biomass. UOP is the world’s foremost refining technology company and Aquaflow is the only company in the world to have supplied UOP with any quantity of algae oil from wild algae. This oil was successfully refined into diesel and jet fractions.
This project supports ongoing development efforts from UOP for a range of process technologies to capture carbon dioxide and produce green fuels and chemicals. UOP has already commercialised the UOP/Eni Ecofining™ process to produce Honeywell Green Diesel™ fuel from biological feedstocks, including algae, and demonstrated process technology to produce Honeywell Green Jet™ fuel.
