Coffeyville Resources & Marketing, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of CVR Energy has selected Honeywell to undertake a feasibility study for ‘lower-carbon’ hydrogen production.

The study will evaluate the applications of carbon capture and hydrogen purification in an effort to reduce the company’s emissions.

The Coffeyville site is currently analysing Honeywell’s technology that converts seed oils, tallow and white/yellow greases into renewable diesel.

Honeywell claims its technology can recover more than 99% of carbon dioxide emissions in the existing hydrogen plant, while increasing high-purity hydrogen recovery.

Dave Lamp, CEO of CVR Energy, said, “We are pleased to take another step in our exploration of reduced emissions.

“We are excited to evaluate further reducing the carbon intensity of this important product through the potential conversion to lower-carbon hydrogen production at Coffeyville.”

Honeywell announced that it would focus on hydrogen solutions to help its customers reduce carbon emissions in 2020.

Barry Glickman, Vice-President and General Manager at Honeywell, commented, “Refiners and companies producing and/or using hydrogen are looking for ways to decarbonise.

“Honeywell has a suite of carbon capture and hydrogen purification solutions to reduce carbon dioxide.

“A feasibility study, similar to the one we are conducting for CVR, is one path to help refiners and other companies determine which solution addresses their specific requirements.”

North American Hydrogen Summit  

H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.

As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.

With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?

If you are a member of the CaFCP, be sure to grab your ticket at a discounted rate with a code that can be provided to you by the events team.
