Topsoe’s HydroFlex Technology Delivers Beyond Expectations in North Dakota
In North Dakota, Topsoe’s HydroFlex technology has been used at the Marathon Petroleum Corp. (MPC) renewable diesel facility in North Dakota, exceeding all process guarantees. The new HydroFlex unit produces 100% renewable diesel from soy and corn oil with a combined capacity of 12,000 barrels per day.
“At Marathon Petroleum, we are meeting the needs of today while investing in a sustainable, energy-diverse future, and our renewable diesel production is a significant part of that commitment,” says Jeff Sexton, Marathon’s Refining Technology Director. “We’re excited about the success we’ve had with this technology at our Dickinson Renewable Diesel facility, which achieved its design capacity during the second quarter. We are looking forward to the conversion of our Martinez, California, refinery to renewable fuels production over the next year.”
