Refineries are more and more interested in technologies for processing of heavy residues – the so called ‚bottom of the barrel‘. About its own technological solutions in this field Pörner Group will read a paper at the IRPC Europe.

Refineries are more and more interested in technologies for processing of heavy residues – the so called ‚bottom of the barrel‘. Due to persistently low crude oil prices refineries try hard to further enhance their productivity and profitability.

To this theme the Pörner Group, represented by Vincent Frate (Process Engineer of Pörner Ingenieurgesellschaft, Vienna) and Dr. Rolf Gambert (Head of Process Division at EDL Anlagenbau Gesellschaft, Leipzig) will read a paper at the International Refining & Petrochemicals Conference (IRPC Europe).

Under the title ‘Efficient use of vacuum residues to produce high-quality multigrade bitumen out of waxy crudes using SDA and Biturox® technology’ Pörner/EDL give insights into their decades-long technological experience and lab tests at own pilot plants. A combination of the SDA and Biturox® technology is a cost-effective and sustainable solution for an almost complete processing of residues and for the production of valuable niche products. This residue processing technology marks itself off from other processes such as coking, gasification or deep cracking by considerably lower investment costs.
