Growing Hydroprocessing profits with innovations from Honeywell UOP, featuring nViro™ Hydro
21 February 2023

Sponsored by: Honeywell UOP

While the growth of the fuels market from oil refining is slowing, tightening  fuel specifications, shifting product demands, and regional capacity rationalizations are pressuring refiners to do more with less. For hydroprocessing units, which are crucial to achieve both conversion to the fuels and petrochemical feedstock products and to ensure that specifications like diesel sulfur are met, this means new units need to be more profitable, and existing units are being pushed to their limits, processing higher throughputs and worse qualities of feed than the design basis.

Introducing UOP nViro™ Hydro, a waste monetization solution for hydroprocessing complexes  that converts  H2S and NH3 in acid gas and sour water streams to fertilizer to improve the economics of the hydroprocessing complex. nViro™ Hydro can be included with a new UOP Unionfining and/or Unicracking complex or can be evaluated via a revamp study of existing hydrotreating and/or hydrocracking complexes.

Join us to learn more about some of the potential benefits of nViro™ Hydro solutions and the synergies that are possible when nViro™ Hydro is combined with other hydroprocessing innovations from UOP. During the webinar, we will discuss the following:

  • Benefits of including nViro™ Hydro in a new Unicracking or Unionfining complex
  • nViro Hydro as a pathway to debottleneck existing hydroprocessing complexes, process higher throughput and/or more contaminated/heavier feedstocks
  • Leveraging UOP revamps & innovations in high activity catalyst, equipment, and process to get the most value out of existing hydroprocessing units

Identifying the Right Net Zero Strategy for Refinery and Petrochemical Facilities
14 February 2023

Sponsor: Lummus Technology

Company leaders and boards of directors are digging deeper into the sustainability path and making commitments for their companies to achieve “Net Zero by 20xx.” But what does this mean for the plant management team who must execute on these plans?

At the operational level, multitasked staffs are dealing with aging assets and challenging production targets while trying to hit budgets and meet compliance goals. With seemingly endless options for decarbonization initiatives, plant leadership must accurately identify key objectives and technologies to plot the best course for achieving success in this space.

This webcast will cover:

  • Planning successfully for a net zero future at the plant level
  • Evaluating the best options for each plant and asset
  • Employing digital solutions for quick wins and foundational growth and change

Crude to Olefins via the Honeywell UOP's Integrated Olefin Suite
7 February 2023

Sponsored by: Honeywell UOP

Annual capacity additions of 6 MM MTA ethylene and 4 MM MTA propylene are needed to meet the continued demand growth of light olefins. Concurrently, demand for transportation fuels is declining in some regions and expected to decline in many others due to the energy transition. This energy transition is creating the need for bankable investments to convert crude into light olefins. The UOP Integrated Olefin Suite contains the technologies and pathways to provide bankable investments to meet the growing needs for ethylene and propylene with lower cost of production.

Join us to learn more about how Honeywell UOP’s newly launched Integrated Olefin Suite of technologies (IOS) enable novel configurations that convert crude to olefins.  Potential benefits include:

  • Crude to olefin carbon efficiencies as high as 80% to drive strong, robust operating margins
  • Configurations that give 100% net crude to light olefins
  • Innovative options to produce niche, higher value by-products such as butadiene and butenes when desired
  • Reduced utilities per metric ton of olefin product and options for zero export of fuel by-products
  • Potential to significantly increase return on investment over conventional configurations

How Turbomachinery Reliability Enables Cost-Effective Hydrogen Liquefaction
9 November 2022

Sponsor: Atlas Copco

The upsurge in interest in hydrogen comes on the back of its exciting potential as a carbon-free energy carrier in mobility and power applications. Historically, hydrogen has been used in refining, chemical processing, steel industries, and ammonia production. Today, the growing momentum for clean fuel and energy has led to enormous opportunities for turbomachinery within the hydrogen supply chain.

Hydrogen liquefaction is one of the few preferred methods to store and transport pure hydrogen. As countries across the world step up efforts to cut greenhouse gas emissions and achieve commitments to net zero by 2050, the demand for hydrogen liquefiers is rising.

Join experts from Atlas Copco Gas and Process and Plug Power as they share insights on LH2 demand, hydrogen liquefaction and reliable turbomachinery design for these demanding processes.
