How Integrating OCM Boosts Steam Cracker Output with a Smaller Carbon Footprint
8 August 2023

Sponsored by: Lummus Technology

Lowering the carbon footprint of steam crackers through efficiency upgrades and alternate fuels results in excess off-gas. Burning this gas for fuel releases more COto the atmosphere. This webcast discusses how integrating an oxidative coupling of methane (OCM) process into a steam cracker turns this excess off-gas into a feedstock for greater ethylene production. In addition, the exothermic OCM process generates heat that can feed the highly endothermic steam cracker—lowering the cracker’s firing duty to increase ethylene yields further while lowering CO2 emissions.

This webcast will also cover:

  • An overview of the OCM process including recent updates
  • Integration concepts for both grassroots and revamp steam crackers
  • Additional off-gas integration opportunities and feedstocks
  • Running OCM in a stand-alone mode using natural gas and gas liquids as feedstock

Hydroprocessing Renewable Feeds: Maximizing Yields of Renewable Diesel and Sustainable Aviation Fuel
18 July 2023

Sponsored by:  ART Hydroprocessing 

Investments in renewable diesel (RD) and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) production are gaining considerable momentum and are expected to play a vital role in reducing carbon emissions for heavy-duty transportation. Currently, the majority of these projects focus on the production of HEFA (Hydroprocessed Esters and Fatty Acids).

Against this backdrop, ART Hydroprocessing, announces the launch of ENDEAVORTM catalyst systems for the hydroprocessing of renewable feeds. ENDEAVORTM consists of EnRich® guard and hydrotreating catalysts, as well as EnHanceTM isomerization catalysts, enabling customers to process a wide range of 100% renewable feeds, with the maximum yields.

This webcast discusses some of the legislation and incentives driving demand for RD and SAF, the challenges associated with the processing of renewable feeds, and the catalyst technologies developed to address this.

ART is a joint venture between Chevron and W.R Grace, and is a leading supplier of hydroprocessing catalysts used in production of cleaner fuels.

Webinar with ARC Advisory Group: How Industry Leaders Maximize Profitability with APM
27 June 2023

Sponsored by: AspenTech

Early returns from an ARC Advisory Group survey indicate that optimizing plant performance and eliminating process upsets are considered a critical component of asset performance management (APM) systems. Many leading companies are successfully using APM solutions—including machine learning or AI—for rotating equipment and static assets, with 27% of those also applying AI to optimize the process or production.

Join ARC Advisory Group Analyst Peter Reynolds for this upcoming webinar to hear the results of this study and get answers to these questions:

  • What value or return do companies see from various site-wide APM approaches?
  • How is APM enabling predictive maintenance and what assets are covered?
  • How are asset-owners deciding on internal custom data science solutions versus commercial AI solutions?

The webinar will also include case study examples of companies maximizing profitability with APM.

Fueling Future Aviation with CO2 to Jet Technology
13 June 2023

Sponsored by: Honeywell UOP

As the world strives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) will continue to be a rapidly growing market. The available global triglyceride feedstocks are insufficient to meet the increasing demand for SAF and additional pathways are necessary. Meeting future demand will require efficient “power to liquids” pathways, which produce eFuels from CO2 using green electricity. This presentation provides an overview of what drives SAF demand, the most promising routes to SAF today, and Honeywell’s efficient, scalable solution for CO2 to jet production: the UOP eFining™ process.

From Design to Operations—Optimize CAPEX, Reduce Risk and Maximize Performance
23 May 2023

Sponsored by: AspenTech

The design and debottleneck of plants often require multiple iterations of engineering and capital expenditure (CAPEX) analysis. No matter how well an asset is designed, once operational, new variables come into play allowing for further optimization opportunities to arise.  The handoffs between design, construction and operations bring new wrinkles to the entire system. What may seem like an inconsequential decision in one area may have a significant impact in another. 

Join AspenTech experts as they discuss how to bridge the gap between design and operations to deliver the best possible ROI and performance from your plant decisions using advanced digital tools. Learn how you can use these solutions to:

  • Identify the potential risk/rewards associated with CAPEX (including sizing storage) and operational decisions
  • Identify major process and equipment redundancies and by-passes to improve efficiency
  • Track system performance across the asset lifecycle (e.g., production, revenue, maintenance costs)
  • Optimize asset maintenance strategy and stock level of spares

Register now and learn how you can enhance capital project design and achieve excellence in operations and maintenance.
