Topsoe’s technologies are set to reduce its customers’ greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 12 million tonnes in 2022 alone. These reductions will not be one-offs, but ongoing for the years to come. The key driver is Topsoe’s renewable fuels solutions, producing low-carbon fuels from waste and biomass.
Roeland Baan, CEO at Topsoe, commented: “Effectively reducing carbon emissions requires a coordinated effort from individual countries, companies and citizens. At Topsoe, we are ready to take the lead in accelerating those efforts. We have made it our mission to reduce our customers’ emissions by 12 million tonnes this year, and we will continue this work beyond 2022. Renewable fuels like renewable jet fuel and diesel are vital components in solving the net zero equation, to transform the global economy into one that is not dependent on fossil fuels.”
The 12 million tonne target is equivalent to removing approximately eight percent of the emissions from the EU’s entire aviation industry.
The reductions will primarily come from Topsoe’s renewable fuels business.
Topsoe is the global market leader in renewable diesel made from waste and biomass feedstock. There is a growing demand for renewable and low-carbon solutions from the heavy-duty transport sector as well as from the aviation and shipping sectors.
The key driver of Topsoe’s renewable fuels business is its patented HydroFlexTM technology, which can produce renewable gasoline, jet fuel and diesel from almost any feedstock, including waste-fractions, tall oil, used cooking oil, animal fats, and vegetable oils.
Topsoe also has a leading position in 'blue' technologies, where CO2 from the production of hydrogen and ammonia is captured and stored safely underground, and in developing Power-to-X solutions enabling decarbonisation of the hard-to-abate sectors such as steel, cement, and mining from electrolysis.
