LONDON—Greenergy International Ltd. will use HydroFlex technology from Haldor Topsoe to make low-carbon fuels from waste tires.
London-based Greenergy will invest in the project to produce the transportation fuels, the company said.
An initial phase of the facility will produce up to 300 tons of shredded tires per day that then will be processed to "produce low-carbon, low-sulfur drop-in fuels that can be blended into diesel and gasoline," Greenergy said.
The new location at the Thames Enterprise Park east of London also will have the option to include a second plant to make aviation fuel using the same technology from Topsoe.
Greenergy said this project "will be the first of its kind to use waste tires as feedstock for low-carbon, low-sulfur fuel production. The tires will be pyrolyzed to produce pyrolysis oil that can be catalytically converted into fuel using Topsoe's HydroFlex technology."
Greenergy calls itself a midstream oil company that supplies and distributes transportation fuels.
