- In late 2020, Marathon Petroleum Corporation (Marathon) began the production of renewable diesel at their Dickinson refinery in North Dakota, US. Marathon now reports successful completion of the refinery’s test run of the grassroot renewable diesel unit.
- The new HydroFlexTM unit produces 100% renewable diesel from soy and corn oil with a capacity of 10,000 barrels-per-day.
- The Topsoe’s HydroFlexTM technology enables our client to convert low-carbon renewable feedstocks into cleaner fuel alternatives.

“This is a great accomplishment for the Marathon and Topsoe Team. We are also excited about the conversion of the Martinez refinery to renewable fuels production with an even larger capacity. We are pleased to be working with Topsoe to expand our production of renewable diesel,” says Jeff Sexton, Refining Technology Director, Marathon Petroleum Corporation.

“We want to thank Marathon for excellent collaboration during entire project execution of the Dickinson ND facility. Marathon is moving forward with a number of additional renewable fuels projects, and we’re proud to contribute to this important endeavor,” says Henrik Rasmussen, Managing Director, The Americas, Haldor Topsoe.

With HydroFlex™, customers can convert low value feedstocks to renewable fuels that qualify for the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS) credit. The innovative HydroFlex™ process layout offers lower capital expenditure (CAPEX), but also a lower energy consumption during operation, resulting in a lower Carbon Index (CI). Topsoe’s HydroFlex™ can be deployed in both grassroots units and revamps for co-processing or stand-alone applications.
