Significant expansion of biofuels capacity for Phillips 66

Further underlining its commitment to reducing the carbon intensity of the fuels it produces, a huge processing unit rolls into the Phillips 66 Humber Refinery.

A UK leader in low carbon liquid fuel development and processing, Phillips 66 Limited’s Humber Refinery, based in Northern Lincolnshire has a proven history of developing new low carbon fuels, being the first in the UK to process used cooking oil. The refinery converts UK & International waste streams to finished bio road fuels.
In a significant investment that expands the refinery’s capability to process used cooking oil (UCO), it recently took delivery of a new processing module, developed by the refinery’s project group to facilitate this. The unit was transported from ENGIE Fabricom in Immingham where it was built arriving on a self-propelled modular transporter (SPMT).
Darren Cunningham, Humber Refinery general manager/UK director, said; “We are pleased to take delivery of our new UCO module at our Humber Refinery. I would like to congratulate all the teams that have been working so hard on this project through such a turbulent time, delivering the project safely. This investment further highlights the refinery’s commitment and investment to further expand our production of bio fuels and reinforces our reputation as the Refinery of the Future.”
Jeff Noble, head of UK operations, ENGIE Fabricom, also commented; “We are delighted to be partnering with Phillips 66 in successfully delivering the UCO Project. This includes off site PAU manufacture and assembly which was achieved on time, within budget and executed without incident.  P66 are a valued customer and this project has provided ENGIE Fabricom with the opportunity to develop our relationship by demonstrating our full suite of capabilities.  We look forward to supporting P66 with the remainder of this project and to provide long term sustainability for the refinery.”
“Our team at ENGIE Fabricom’s Immingham manufacturing facility, are proud to have worked closely with P66 in the safe delivery of this project, adapting brilliantly with the unique challenges faced by all in 2020’s unprecedented circumstances. With both companies also motivated by the environmental benefits from such innovative Bio-Fuel ventures.” Said Mark Astwood, manufacturing facility manager, ENGIE Fabricom Immingham.
This Humber Refinery expansion project enabling increased bio-fuels capacity further supports UK downstream low carbon fuels contributing to a net zero future for the UK.
