Development of a new technology for the management of unreacted oil from the hydrocracking process using filtration systems – UCOPure acronym
Project implemented by the Consortium: Grupa LOTOS, Polymemtech
The innovative technology proposed by the Consortium, consisting in the removal of heavy polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons from UCO in the process of integrated filtration, is a low-temperature and low-pressure process compared to existing solutions. The technology can be used to remove PAHs from both UCO, which was made of light and heavy charge. The installation can be built at any point in the process chain, e.g. as an integral part of the hydrocracking installation, catalytic dewaxing installation, it can also be installed in the UCO route from the hydrocracking installation to the storage tank and/or in many other places where UCO is used in refineries and more.
The aim of the project is to develop a technology for removing heavy polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from hydrocracking residues (UCO) in the filtration process. The goal is to remove the entire group of PAHs, not just some, and selectively.
