Hydrocarbon Processing Samsung C&T to build Korea's fist ammonia import terminal for co-firing power generation The terminal will include facilities for storing, unloading, and transporting ammonia. A 30,000-ton storage tank will be used to compress and store ammonia for co-firing power generation. The terminal will also use a fuel blend comprised of at least 20% ammonia for co-firing with coal to reduce carbon emissions.

Mammoet completes heavy haul for Portugal's Sines Industrial Complex's ALBA project The ALBA project will see significant expansion of the Sines Industrial Complex in Portugal. This large facility includes a linear polyethylene plant and a polypropylene plant.   New Energy Blue and ARCO/Murray partner to build biomass refineries to produce sustainable fuels and chemicals New Energy Blue, the clean-energy developer whose technology converts agricultural waste into lowest-carbon biofuels and biochemicals, and ARCO/Murray announced a partnership to build out the New Energy Biomass Refinery designed platform across the American Midwest. China produces first nuclear-generated steam for petrochemicals plant China's first nuclear-based steam generation project began production on Wednesday, state-run China National Nuclear Corp (CNNC) said in a Wechat post announcing the latest step in Chinese efforts to decarbonize heavy industry. Hydrogen-rich content gasoline: A new concept for paraffinic gasoline reformulation Several refiners are evaluating a new gasoline-formulation technology called hydrogen (H2)-rich-content (HRC) gasoline. This patented technology uses low-sulfur, H2-rich refinery blendstocks like straight-run gasoline, isomerates, alkylate, butanes and renewable naphtha in gasoline blends, and adds aromatic amines (a high-octane gasoline additive) to make a drop-in specification gasoline. A multi-objective optimization study for an integrated oil refinery-petrochemical plant—Part 2 In this research, the integration of an oil refinery and an ethylene-producing facility was examined using a mixed-integer nonlinear programming model that prioritized maximizing ethylene and propylene production and net profit. Accelerating the DCS of the future: Open process automation technology Based in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, PETRONAS operates all oil and gas resources in the country and is responsible for developing and adding value to them.
