Topsoe has been appointed by SGP BioEnergy to support the production of renewable fuels in South America’s largest upcoming plant in Panama – the first time both advanced biofuels and green hydrogen will be produced at scale.
Topsoe will provide its HydroFlex™ technology to produce Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and Renewable Diesel (RD), while also deploying its H2bridge™ technology to ensure the plant has a Net Zero greenhouse gas footprint, recycling green hydrogen generated by waste carbon and production by-product back into the plant’s operations.
Henrik Rasmussen, Managing Director, The Americas, Topsoe, said he was excited to support the production of low-carbon fuels with its proven technologies for what will be the largest renewable fuels plant in South America, while also facilitating the net-zero operations of the biorefinery, adding that it was “a true model” for a low-carbon energy future.
Construction is on schedule for first production by 2025. The biorefinery will have a producing capacity of 180,000 bpd (2.6bn gallons per year) of biofuel and 405,000 MT of green hydrogen annually once fully operational. Panama offers great potential as a platform to transport the sustainable fuels globally.
