No More Residues! A cost-effective and efficient residue processing technology

Process scheme of an SDA plant in combination with a Biturox® plant as part of a modern residue processing technology

Stricter environmental regulations and the increasing use of heavy, high-sulfur crude require the refineries to think about efficient solutions for the petroleum residues.

The Pörner Group as a specialist for residue processing and bitumen technology provides advice, design and development of complete technology concepts for an ideally hundred per cent non-residue refinery.

A Solvent Deasphalting (SDA) plant combined with a Biturox® Bitumen plant is capable of processing various heavy residues entirely to become valuable products, such as DAO (Deasphalted Oil) and Bitumen.
 

A secure beginning

At company-owned pilot plants in Germany and Austria and in cooperation with research institutes we design complete plants based on process simulations. 

In this process the following components are determined: 

  • various feedstocks (vacuum or visbreaker residue etc.)
  • the product qualities of

    • DAO (CCR, S, V, Ni, Fe etc.) for FCC, hydrocracker, lube oil production
    • Pitch (penetration, softening point, density, flash point, content of asphaltene, sulfur and paraffin etc.) for bitumen production

  • the optimal process parameters, yields and solvents
  • the sub-critical and super-critical operating conditions 

Based on a comprehensive evaluation of all test and analytical data an optimized plant design is ultimately defined.
