Based on new environmental regulations focusing on volatile organic compounds (VOCs) at the emissions point of a refinery’s sulfur recovery unit (SRU), Raffineria di Milazzo—a JV between Eni and Kuwait Petroleum Italia—carried out troubleshooting activities to identify and implement suitable actions to minimize the concentration of VOCs at the emissions point of the SRU complex.

One of the biggest challenges to the crude oil refining industry over the past decades is the development of technologies capable of reducing the environmental impact of crude oil derivatives, while also raising their performance.
Kuwait has issued a tender offering three low-sulfur fuel oil (LSFO) cargoes for loading between February and April from its Al Zour refinery, industry sources said this week.
It is widely accepted that state-of-the-art sulfur recovery technologies utilize the modified Claus process as well as some extension technology on the tail gas.
Hydrocarbon Processing (HP) sat down with Pinti Wang (PW), President and CEO, GTC Vorro Technology, to get his insights on sulfur removal processes, technology licensing and other topics within the process industries. Wang was the recipient of Hydrocarbon Processing’s 2019 Lifetime Achievement Award.
