ExxonMobil Rolls Out Renewable Diesel Process Technology

Technology enables high yields from bio-feedstocks.

ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing LLC introduces ExxonMobil Renewable Diesel process technology (EMRD) to help meet evolving needs for mobility while utilizing renewable feedstock. The new process technology converts feedstocks including vegetable oils, unconverted cooking oil and animal fats into renewable diesel.

The EMRD process is an integrated offering that leverages ExxonMobil’s Bio-Isomerization Dewaxing (BIDWTM) catalyst. This reportedly 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, according to the company.

“Choosing the right process technology is critical to producing both renewable diesel and jet fuel from bio-feedstocks. The EMRD process provides an advanced solution that enables high yields while meeting stringent seasonal product specifications,” says James Ritchie, president of ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing LLC.

Due to significant interest in producing renewable jet fuel as a primary product, according to the company, ExxonMobil is also developing advanced catalyst and process technology offerings that will offer EMRD process licensees flexibility to tailor the amount of jet fuel versus diesel produced.
