Sulzer Chemtech BioFlux process technology for sustainable fuels generation 2023

According to the most recent assessment from NexantECA, the BioFlux® process technology for the generation of renewable fuel, which was developed by Duke Technologies and licensed by Sulzer Chemtech, has been recognized for its leading cost-effectiveness and competitiveness in the industry.
This recognition attests to Sulzer Chemtech’s important position and dedication in advancing the adoption of greener methods and renewable resources across the industry as a whole.
The independent techno-economic report titled “Biorenewable Insights – Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (HVO)” produced by NexantECA provides an overview of the major licensed technologies for the production of fuels by hydrotreating vegetable oils. The report is titled “Biorenewable Insights – Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (HVO)”.

According to the estimations provided in the study, BioFlux is one of the top two most cost-effective hydrotreating systems that may be used to produce high-value organics (HVO) and/or sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Because of its many benefits, BioFlux technology enables its customers to reduce their capital expenditures (CAPEX) as well as their operations expenses (OPEX), regardless of where in the world they are located.
The innovative design of BioFlux’s liquid full reactor, which maximizes the amount of hydrogen that is available while eliminating the requirement for a separate vapor recycle loop, is one of the key features that contribute to the process of hydrotreating bio-feedstocks being particularly cost-effective.
Matthew Viergutz, head of GTC in the clean fuels and chemicals licensing business at Sulzer Chemtech, stated that technology providers have a responsibility to assist businesses in their transition towards more environmentally conscious practices by providing solutions that are both affordable and of high quality. Only in this manner is it feasible for players in the sector to reap the benefits of a rapid return on their investments. The findings of an independent analysis conducted by NexantECA demonstrate how Sulzer Chemtech is accomplishing this objective by providing its clients with the most advanced process technology available on the market today. We are excited to help clients all around the world in the adoption of BioFlux and other technologies that have the potential to change the game.
