Maire Tecnimont Group's Technological Solutions in the Green Hydrogen Arena
3 November 2022

The intermittency of renewable power sources and potential fluctuation of the hydrogen off taking are quickly becoming topical challenges for industrial sectors pursuing renewable hydrogen and its derivatives. NextChem (Maire Tecnimont Group) is addressing these challenges with two software tools developed in-house, ArcHy (Hydrogen plant Architecture Evaluation) and HyPer (Hydrogen plant Performance Simulator). The simulation tool is intended to evaluate the energy performance of a hydrogen plant, with a focus on the production, storage, and utilization of hydrogen.

Mechanical Vapor Recompression key to steam energy upgrade within a polyolefin plant
14 September 2022

A polyolefin plant in the Netherlands uses mechanical vapor recompression (MVR) to upgrade low-pressure steam so it can be reused to supply energy. An Atlas Copco Gas and Process two-stage centrifugal compressor compresses superheated steam from 3 barg to 12.5 barg in two steps, resulting in a significant reduction in natural gas usage and a net reduction in CO2 emissions.

Preventing Corrosion Resulting from Renewables Conversion
6 September 2022

Many oil and gas companies are repurposing refineries to produce renewable diesel, sustainable aviation fuel, and other renewable biofuels and products. Their process equipment will now be faced with new chemical compositions, pressures, and temperatures, leading to new corrosion mechanisms (Free Fatty Acid (FFA), Naphthenic Acid, Carbonic Acid, Chlorides). To protect the existing equipment base material and pressure boundary, a metallurgy upgrade is required to prevent corrosion and potential asset integrity failure. There are several options available to achieve this, discussed in this white paper.
