Tyson & ConocoPhillips - Renewable Fuels Creates Strange Bedfellows

Agriculture and petrochemicals merge and call it renewable fuel.

Find green business solutions
It's always intriguing to find that innovation is happening in the small town in which you grew up. This morning I read that Tyson Foods is teaming up with ConocoPhillips to manufacture ultra-low-sulfur diesel.

Agriculture and petrochemicals merge and call it renewable fuel.

To make the fuel, the animal fats from chicken, pork and beef will be processed with hydrocarbon feedstocks to improve its storage stability and handling characteristics.

The fuel will meet federal standards for ultra-low-sulfur diesel, and the two companies plan to make as much as 175 million gallons per year of renewable diesel. To make the fuel, the animal fats will be processed with hydrocarbon feedstocks to improve its storage stability and handling characteristics.

Tyson formed a renewable energy unit late last year, and has said it has access to about 2.3 billion pounds of animal fat annually — the equivalent 20,000 barrels a day of feedstock that can be turned into renewable fuel. Production is expected to start late in 2007 and ramp up through spring 2009.

Most biofuels are produced from soybean oil. This is one of the few operations in the US that will use animal fat.
