FCC Revamps to Reduce CO2 and Drive Operational Efficiency
11 April 2023

Sponsored by: Lummus Technology

Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) processes have long been a trusted workhorse in the refining industry to meet market demand for fuels and petrochemicals. Operators consider FCC revamp projects to further expand product slate flexibility, increase efficiency and reliability and, in today’s environment, reduce CO2 to meet ever-tightening emissions targets. But how do you correctly plan your FCC revamp?

This webcast will present planning considerations and benefits to ensure your FCC revamp achieves all desired objectives, including:

  • Strategies for CO2 reduction to meet current and future emissions targets
  • Options for improving performance, reliability and profitability
  • Low-cost technology-based solutions to meet the refiner’s processing objectives while minimizing or eliminating constraints

Controlling Costs and Prioritizing Safety in Industrial Gas Systems
21 March 2023

Sponsored by: Swagelok

Gas systems can easily become an afterthought, especially if they are not transporting anything overtly hazardous. Yet even the most mundane gas leaks can add up to serious costs when they drive down the efficiency of equipment or lead to outright downtime. Specialty gas leaks are an even bigger problem—at best they are expensive, and at worst they are downright dangerous. So, what do you really need to know and do to keep your gas systems operating effectively?

Join us for this webinar to find out. We will cover:

  • Essential components of a gas distribution system
  • How to reliably maintain pressure in bottle-fed, compressed gas systems
  • Where to spend time and resources now to save money later
  • When to consider standard or configurable pre-built system designs
  • How to improve operator and environmental safety by reducing leaks and making smart design choices

Futureproof your FCC Flue Gas with Honeywell UOP’s nViro™ FCC
14 March 2023

Sponsored by: Honeywell UOP

Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) is a mature technology that reliably produces high quality gasoline and petrochemicals that keep automobiles and economies running.  However, FCC flue gas is becoming a challenge for refiners who are now facing evolving emission regulations and a push to reduce CO2 emissions.

Join our webinar to learn about how Honeywell UOP can help bring your FCC into the future.

UOP's nViro™ FCC flue gas treatment for fluid catalytic cracking complexes helps refiners meet emission specifications from their FCC unit by reducing contaminants, including SOX, NOX, and particulates with heat recovery to improve efficiency and reduce scope 2 CO2 emissions and water utility. The patented UOP's nViro™ FCC solution can be designed to achieve emission specifications for a new FCC or an existing unit, or can be designed as pretreatment for a carbon capture system, to reduce CO2 footprint even further.

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
