Topsoe has been selected by Federated Co-operatives Limited (FCL) to officially support the production of renewable diesel in Regina. FCL has chosen Topsoe’s HydroFlex process to produce low-carbon renewable diesel.

The FCL renewable diesel plant, once fully operational, has the potential to produce 15,000 barrels per day. The facility will be part of a larger Integrated Agriculture Complex, which also includes a canola crushing plant. FCL expects to be producing renewable diesel in 2027.

With HydroFlex, Topsoe says, customers can convert low value feedstocks into drop-in renewable jet and diesel that meets all the globally accepted specifications for these fuels.

Henrik Rasmussen, managing director, the Americas, Topsoe, said “We are proud to have been chosen as the official technology vendor for FCL’s new venture.

“Driven by our commitment to a sustainable future, we are focused on helping organizations like FCL reach their low-carbon economy goals and objectives.”

FCL’s current refinery in Regina produces traditional petroleum products. Combining renewable fuels with those products FCL already manufactures will create a sustainable seed-to-tank solution for fuel production in Western Canada.

Gil Le Dressay, VP, Manufacturing, FCL, said “The production of renewable diesel is an important step in our transition to the low-carbon economy.”

FCL, based in Saskatoon, is focused on providing more than 160 local co-ops across Western Canada with strategy and leadership, wholesaling, manufacturing, logistics, operational support, business-enabling services, and marketing support.
