'Relying on AI'

  • New sulphur projects - Sulphur production continues to expand in the Middle East and China both from new refineries and major sour gas projects
  • Sustainable refineries - Liquid fuels will be with us for decades to come, but refiners will be pushed to decarbonise their activities, via greater use of biofuels, and green/blue hydrogen use. How will this affect sulphur output?
  • Developments in sulphur polymers - New research is looking into the varied world of sulphur co-polymers, unlocking new materials for batteries, structural applications and clean technology.
  • A new era in catalyst geometric shape selection - BASF is challenging traditional catalyst shapes and performance relationships using 3D-printing technology and is using sulphuric acid catalysts as the pilot to pioneer new ground.
  • Impact and mitigation of processing bio-feeds in a refinery - The production of renewable fuels by retrofitting existing refineries and their infrastructure is witnessing exponential growth. The impact on the existing amine, sour water and sulphur recovery units is inevitable. Worley Comprimo discusses the various options available to holistically review the sulphur block to determine the impact and mitigation of processing bio-feed.
  • Best practices for sulphur pipeline design - ADNOC Sour Gas highlights the best practices implemented in a newly commissioned liquid sulphur pipeline that is part of the expansion of the Shah gas plant in the United Arab Emirates.
  • Reaping the rewards of recycling - Evonik explores the development of catalyst reuse and how recycled hydroprocessing catalysts can be successfully applied in tail gas treating units to deliver cost and performance gains.
  • Another lesson from an SRU shutdown - Sulfur Recovery Engineering shares the lessons learned from an emergency shutdown of an MCRC sulphur recovery unit in the middle of a cold Canadian winter.
