  • CO2 reduction in fried equipment

    Fired heaters emit millions of tons of carbon dioxide (CO2) every year. Fired heaters usually have a fuel efficiency well below 100%, so any improvements that making them more efficient reduces CO2. Heaters are currently fuelled by carbon-bearing refinery fuel gas or natural gas, so further CO2 reduction is possible by changing to fuels with less carbon content. With the ever-changing regulatory climate, enacting an emissions reduction plan can provide a strategic advantage ...

  • Hydrogen fuel conversion in fired equipment

    Organizations are facing unprecedented challenges in achieving their strategic climate goals. Now is the time to evaluate options for hydrogen refuelling, efficiency improvements, and novel methods of CO2 reduction in fired heaters and boilers. You can reduce carbon footprints by refuelling fired equipment with hydrogen or ammonia. When planning a refuelling effort there is much more to consider than just the Wobbe Index and combustion performance. The system will experience ...

  • RVP in process: ensure safety, comply with specifications, optimize profits

    Pipeline operators, offshore platforms, terminals, fuel depots or oil tankers detect the vapor pressure, before transporting crude oil or other petrochemical products such as Gasoline or LPG for subsequent processing. It is absolutely necessary to know the vapor pressure of the transported substance to prevent costly damage done to the transportation or storage system.   Apart from the costs a failure might cause, environmental regulations limit maximum vapor pressure ...

  • The potential of Carbon Capture for refining

    This post will assess the importance of Carbon Capture, Utilisation, and Storage (CCUS) technologies for Refiners. It will look at current CCUS projects in Europe and explore the potential challenges and opportunities that downstream players will face when trying to implement CCUS technologies into their operations. Considering the impact of multiple challenges, this post will show the importance of associations, regulatory frameworks and cross-industry collaboration as vital ...

  • Vapor pressure testing for petroleum, LPG, crude oil and Chemicals

    Vapor pressure is an important physical property of volatile liquids especially of spark-ignition engine fuels. It provides an indication of how a fuel will perform under different operating conditions. For example, vapor pressure is a factor in determining, whether a fuel will cause vapor locks at high ambient temperature or at high altitude, or will provide easy starting at low ambient temperatures. Petroleum product specifications are regulated by various governmental agencies. ...

  • Decarbonization with hydrogen solutions

    Demand for hydrogen is expected to increase up to ten-fold by 2050 when multiple industry reports predict 8-24% of the world’s final energy demand will be supplied by hydrogen. Hydrogen has a unique ability to address ‘hard-to-decarbonize’ sectors including refining, chemicals, steel, heating, long-haul transport, and long-term power storage – all of which currently produce significant CO2 emissions. To achieve this, hydrogen must be produced with significantly lower carbon ...
