First Axens PolyFuel® unit successfully started up at Petrobrazi refinery
After four years of teamwork for project development and execution, the new PolyFuel® unit at Petrobrazi refinery was started-up and is fully functional since April 2019. Based on the PolyFuel® technology licensed by Axens, the OMV Petrom’s project at Petrobrazi refinery enables to increase the FCC products value by upgrading LPG and Light Cracked Naphtha into high quality fuels.
In June 2019, the unit test-run was successfully completed, demonstrating that the unit performances are well in line with the expectations.
“The PolyFuel® unit of Petrobrazi refinery is the first of its kind valorizing C4 and C5 / C6 fractions into high quality gasoline and middle distillates, increasing the overall production of these products” said Bruno Domergue, Axens Clean Fuels, Bio, Olefins and Gas business line Director. ”The new Polyfuel unit brings the state-of-the-art technologies used in the petrochemical and refining industry to the Petrobrazi refinery. Due to sustained investments, Petrobrazi continues to rank among the most important refineries in Romania, operating at the highest standards –energy efficiency and environmental standards included – and contributing to the economic development of the area", said Radu Căprău, member of OMV Petrom Executive Board, responsible for Downstream Oil.
