CVR Energy subsidiary selects Honeywell for a lower-carbon H2 study

Honeywell announced that it has been selected by Coffeyville Resources & Marketing, a wholly owned subsidiary of CVR Energy for a feasibility study for lower-carbon H2 production in Coffeyville, Kansas. The study will evaluate the application of carbon capture and H2 purification as an emission reduction solution.

The Coffeyville site is evaluating utilizing Honeywell UOP Ecofining technology to convert seed oils, tallow and white/yellow greases into renewable diesel fuel. CVR and Honeywell will now evaluate further reduction of the carbon footprint at the Coffeyville site with lower-carbon H2.

Depending on the inlet gas composition and product requirements, Honeywell UOP carbon capture technologies can recover greater than 99% of the CO2 in the existing H2 plant syngas while increasing high-purity H2 recovery. The amount of net CO2 captured and sequestered by renewable fuel producers can be used to adjust the carbon intensities of the associated fuel pathways.

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

“Refiners and companies producing and/or using hydrogen are looking for ways to decarbonize. Honeywell has a suite of carbon capture and hydrogen purification solutions to reduce CO2,” said Barry Glickman, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Sustainable Technology Solutions. “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.”
