Hydrogenation plants adapt the properties of the end products to the next process steps or the specification of the commercial products. The requirements for hydrogenation plants at refineries are very versatile. They comprise the removal of heteroatoms, such as sulfur, nitrogen and oxygen, if necessary, the change of substance properties with the aim to reduce the boiling range and density or even fundamentally change the substance groups contained in the feedstock. Combinations of different requirements are possible.

 

Benefits for the customer

A hydrogenation plant allows a substantial growth in added value by a larger product range and its value by selecting the hydrogenation process in accordance with the prerequisites (ISBL and OSBL) and the market requirements.
