Jacobs Engineering Group Inc. has received a contract from CPC Corp., Taiwan, to design and license Jacobs proprietary EUROCLAUS technology for a desulfurization unit as part of the Ta-Lin refinery expansion project in Kaoshiung, Taiwan.
This project is said to be the first to combine Jacobs EUROCLAUS technology with DynaWave technology, which is engineered and licensed by US-based MECS, Inc. The combination of these two unique technologies reportedly makes it possible to achieve very-low-sulfur emissions at low-investment cost compared to existing technologies. The new desulfurization unit will be integral to CPCs refinery operations. CPC will design and build the Ta-Lin refinery expansion. The new facility, scheduled to be operational in 2013, will produce clean-fuel products for the local Taiwanese market.
