FCC SOX REDUCTION ADDITIVES; IMPROVING WGS SCRUBBER ECONOMICS
FCC SOx reduction additives represent a CAPEX-free approach with lower OPEX costs, and provide refiners with a high degree of flexibility for controlling SOx emissions across a wide range of operational conditions.
A CATALYSTIC REMEMDY FOR ADVANCED UCO BLEED REDUCTION IN RECYCLE HYDROCRACKING OPERATIONS
A refinery's flexibility and responsiveness to market dynamics and regulatory environments has a major impact on its competitive position. Tighter specifications on refinery process schemes combined with more robust catalyst systems affords more sustainably turning a larger portfolio of opportunity feedstocks into a product slate that is more in sync with the market dynamics.
IMPROVING OPERATING PROFITABILITY AT THE REFINERY WITH ACHIEVE® TECHNOLOGY
In this article, KMG Rompetrol and Grace provide an overview on how refineries can increase the profitability of their FCC operation by maximizing the production of propylene and iso-butylene using the latest FCC catalyst and additive technology. ACHIEVE® technology from Grace has contributed sustaining the refinery's profitability, as well as improving its competitive position in the marketplace.
REDUCING NOX EMISSION FROM THE HELLENIC PETROLEUM FCC UNIT
As a result of the Industrial Emissions Directive (IED), the main EU instrument regulating pollutant emissions from industrial installations, many refiners in the EU are facing more stringent SOx and NOx emissions with additional emission reduction targets coming into effect in 2018. One such refinery is Hellenic Petroleum's, Aspropyrgos Refinery in Greece who have successfully managed to reduce NOx emissions using Grace FCC additive technology.
nEWEST ADDITIONS TO SMART® CATALYST SYSTEM TECHNOLOGY ACHIEVE LONGER RUN LENGTHS THROUGH INCREASED ACTIVITY, IMPROVED STABILITY
ART Hydroprocessing's DX® Catalyst Series has demonstrated superior performance in ULSD applications, exceeding expectations for many years and ART's 425DX and 545DX catalysts continue to excel in middle distillate after worldwide acceptance. Responding to the need to balance feedstock flexibility, cycle length, and product flexibility, ART developed ICR 316 and 548DX to process tougher feeds, meet tighter specifications, improve product quality, and expand capacity with no additional capital costs.
