Haldor Topsoe’s technologies selected for Indaba Renewable Fuels’ biorefineries in California and Missouri

By Mary Page Bailey |

Haldor Topsoe A/S (Lyngby, Denmark) has announced that   Indaba Renewable Fuels (Indaba; Newport Beach, Calif.) will build two greenfield refineries in California and Missouri to produce Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) utilizing Topsoe’s HydroFlex technology.

The facilities are expected to begin production of SAF in 2024 totaling. The capacity of the plants is 6,500 barrels per day at each location. Topsoe will also provide its H2bridge hydrogen technology for both facilities that further replaces fossil fuels with renewable liquids like LPG or naphtha to lower the carbon intensity of the products.

“We are excited to provide Indaba with refining technology and catalysts as they initiate production of renewable fuels in the United States. Our HydroFlex solution is designed to produce sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) based on renewable feedstock, with a minimal Carbon Intensity (CI score) compared to traditional petroleum aviation fuel,” says Henrik Rasmussen, Managing Director, The Americas, Haldor Topsoe Inc.

The solution enables Indaba’s facilities to accept a wide variety of feedstocks as well as the production of multiple low carbon Index (CI) renewable fuels.

“We are thrilled to select Haldor Topsoe’s market-leading HydroFlex™ technology for these projects that will enable us to lead the aviation industry’s transition to sustainable and low emissions fuel. These projects will source feedstocks from waste products to create low carbon emission SAF for decades,” says Geoff Hirson, Chief Executive Officer, Indaba Renewable Fuels.
