Honeywell Introduces Process to Produce Cleaner-Burning Euro-V Gasoline

Honeywell has announced a new refinery configuration, developed by Honeywell UOP, to produce a cleaner-burning gasoline product that meets increasingly stringent fuel regulations, including the Euro V standard, which limits sulfur content and restricts carbon emissions from gasoline and diesel vehicles.

The UOP Premium Gasoline Complex (PGC) employs a combination of technologies to convert 100 percent of naphtha into 95 RON Euro-V gasoline--without the addition of traditional octane boosters such as alkylate, MTBE, ETBE, and ethanol—to meet these regulations.

Commenting on the development, Bryan Glover, president and CEO of Honeywell UOP, said “this PGC configuration is an excellent solution to hydrocracking and topping refineries that need to produce cleaner-burning gasoline that meets increasingly strict fuel specifications.”

“It can be a cost-effective way for established refiners that require modernization to improve profit margins, and turn an uncompetitive refinery into a world-class operation,” Glover added.

UOP’s IsomEx technology also can be employed to increase the capacity of existing Platforming units by separately processing C7s that would otherwise be fed to a Platforming unit. The addition of an IsomEx unit, in effect, can expand the processing capacity of a Platforming unit by as much as 20 per cent.

UOP is a leading global provider of each technology within the UOP Premium Gasoline Complex. More than 350 light naphtha isomerization units are in operation or in design and construction.

The CCR Platforming process produces reformate for high-octane, low-sulfur gasoline and aromatics, and is designed as a reliable, continuous source of high-purity hydrogen for the production of other fuel products. Since it was first introduced in 1971, more than 375 CCR Platforming units are in operation or in design and construction worldwide.
