Automation Technology Supports Growing Demand for Green Diesel
10 March 2022

A new hydrocarbon industry is developing to supply green (renewable) diesel, identical to conventional diesel, but using no fossil fuel feedstocks. To achieve the maximum carbon intensity reduction, these types of plants must operate with the highest possible efficiency, which requires the use of digital transformation tools and techniques to optimize processes and manage energy consumption. Emerson’s new white paper explains how a variety of these digital tools help producers solve problems related to feedstock variability, asset condition monitoring, custody transfer, and more.

Real time measurements of ethane in ethylene manufacturing process. Field trials of the TDLAs based analyzer
1 March 2022

Ethylene production has stringent product purity requirements. Ethane is a by-product of modern ethylene production processes and is considered one of the main impurities of the process. Small concentrations of ethane considered as inert must be purged from the system as they are operationally undesirable. Read how a new analyzer for the extractive measurements of ethane based on Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAs) has been deployed for process control of product purity in ethylene production.
