  • Caustic tower revamp

    A customer contacted Sulzer to increase capacity while improving the CO2 removal in the existing CO2 absorption column of their ethylene plant. This was the third revamp for this particular column and continued improvements can be hard to find. A proper caustic tower design requires a proper understanding of CO2 absorption with caustic. CO2 + 2NaOH Na2CO3 + H2O Sulzer replaced the conventional random packing with NeXRing and modified the operating parameters to match the ...

  • 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 ...

When planning a refuelling effort there is much more to consider than just the Wobbe Index and combustion performance. The system will experience ...

  • ISOMALK - moving forward ahead of global trends

    Changes in trends in the world and regional markets of motor fuels are sometimes completely unpredictable. A few years ago, it seemed that the development of massive «dieselization» trend, so dominant in the EU, would lead to a drop in demand for gasoline. It seemed that diesel engines solved both the problem of reducing CO2 emissions and increasing efficiency, making the diesel fuels the trade-off solution that would allow the world's motor vehicle to survive quite well ...

  • KDSOx™

    Cost-effective SOx reduction solution for full-combustion FCC units. Reducing SOx emissions has become increasingly challenging in many parts of the world. Depending on the location, SOx emission limits are defined at the refinery level as bubble limits; at the individual emissions source; or, in some cases, by the concentrations in the atmosphere in the vicinity. In light of these challenges, many refineries have successfully used SOx additives for reducing overall sulfur ...

  • KOC-15™- Flexible and effective way to lower afterburn in your FCC unit

    KOC-15 additive is Albemarle’s most widely used platinum-based combustion promoter, and is commercially proven to provide many refiners with a reliable, low-cost and flexible solution to afterburn and excess carbon monoxide (CO) emissions. In the regenerator, the coke (carbon) on the spent catalyst is burned to form carbon dioxide (CO2). During combustion of carbon to CO2, CO forms as an intermediate. The conversion of carbon to CO in the presence of oxygen occurs rapidly; ...
