Honeywell UOP technology will allow state government to meet regional emission standards

July 14/2021

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Honeywell announced that the Societe Ivoirienne de Raffinage (SIR), the state-owned refining company of Cote dIvoire, will use Honeywell UOP Distillate Unionfining  technology to produce diesel that complies with both AFRI 6 and Euro-V emission standards, said Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The investment is part of Cote dIvoire clean air program and SIRs refinery modernization. UOP, a leading technology provider for the oil and gas industry, will provide services, equipment, catalysts and adsorbents. The UOP Unionfining process removes impurities to improve the quality of middle distillate feedstocks such as kerosene, jet fuel, and diesel oils that meet increasingly stringent regulations for fuels such as diesel.

"The addition of the UOP Distillate Unionfining process will allow SIR to meet changing diesel specifications in Africa, with a cost-effective solution that reduces the sulfur content while maximizing distillate yields, said Laura Leonard, vice president and general manager, Honeywell UOP Process Technologies. Our design for this unit and track record of success with this technology enables SIR to raise its crude processing capacity, as part of the modernization one of the West Africas largest oil refineries."

UOP Unionfining technology provides flexible solutions to gas oil conversion for ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel and kerosene production. UOP is the worlds leading provider of distillate hydrotreating technology and has licensed more than 370 Unionfining units globally.

The Societe Ivoirienne de Raffinage (SIR) was created in 1962 by the Ivorian government with the support of international oil groups. It refines crude oil and distributes petroleum products in Cote dIvoire and the rest of the world. SIR refines 3.8 million tons of crude oil on an annual basis.

As MRC reported earlier, in May, 2020, Honeywell announced that Enterprise Products Partners L.P. will use Honeywell UOPs C3 Oleflex technology in its second propane dehydrogenation plant, called "PDH 2". Located near Mont Belvieu, Texas, PDH 2 will produce 750,000 metric tons per year of polymer-grade propylene as part of Enterprises expansion of propylene manufacturing capacity.

Propylene is the main feedstock for the production of polypropylene (PP).

According to MRC's ScanPlast report, Russia's supply of homopolymer PP and PP block copolymers increased, whereas shipments of PP random copolymers decreased. PP deliveries to the Russian market were 523,900 tonnes in January-April 2021, up by 55% year on year.
