A green alternative to hydroprocessing
As ESG (environmental, societal, and governance) emphasis increases, refineries must evaluate all possible options to improve operations. Flex is a proven sulfur treatment solution.
Flex Desulfurization: Multiple options for refineries
Bolt-on to treat bottoms
Use Flex as a frontend bolt-on to accommodate a heavier crude slate while reducing overall plant GHG emissions
Place Flex units after the atmospheric or vacuum resid towers to reduce process intensity in downstream units
Enable heavy fuel treatment
Position Flex to treat heavy fuel products such as marine fuels and fuel oils while reducing total refinery hydrogen use
Drastically reduce hydrogen use
Flex desulfurization is more efficient at hydrogen utilization than high-temperature hydroprocessing units.
