Russia – Sulzer GTC Technology has recently signed an agreement with JSC Sibur-Neftehim (Sibur). Under the contract, Sulzer GTC will provide its licensed pyrolysis gasoline (pygas) processing technologies for the modernisation of a benzene production facility at Sibur’s Kstovo olefins production plant near Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia. This will also include the design of the fractionation, first and second stage hydrotreating, aromatics extraction and thermal hydrodealkylation technologies.

Specialist Book „Heat Transfer Technique“The comprehensive standard work „Heat Transfer Technique“ offers not only a detailed and well-founded presentation of the basics of heat transfer technique, but also shows the latest state of the art and the latest regulations in the use of organic fluids. Thematically, the book is rounded off with an overview of property data of organic heat transfer fluids as well as many use cases from practical experience.

The modernised facility will serve as a hub for processing full range pygas from several Sibur facilities, allow production of high-purity benzene with the lowest cash cost, and recover non-aromatics to be used as cracker feed. Sulzer GTC will design a new GT-BTX unit as well as revamp the existing pygas fractionation; first and second stage hydrotreating; and the thermal hydrodealkylation unit to process additional feed. Scope of supply includes the basic engineering package, technical services, proprietary catalyst, solvent and equipment.

“We are pleased to work with such a prestigious company as Sibur to provide effective solutions for producing aromatics from pyrolysis gasoline and modernising olefins production complexes,” said Ilya L. Aranovich, Sulzer GTC Director of Licensing for North America, Europe, and CIS Countries.
