Waste products (waste dust and fines, oversized supporting materials) resulting from transportation, regeneration, density grading, stripping, light burn and screenings stay in refiner’s ownership. They will be either returned to the customer together with the rejuvenated catalyst or sent to the recycling company on behalf of the customer / owner of the catalyst for final metals extraction. Waste products will be packed in easily identified drums.
OptimLine Technologies is ready to offer to its customers innovative solutions for catalyst packaging.
April 2017 saw fulfillment of another project for recovery of hydroprocessing catalysts for LUKOIL Nizhegorodnefteorgsintez.
The significance of the quality of catalysts for oil refinery can’t be emphasized too strongly. Having a price incomparably smaller than total cost of final refinery product, low quality catalyst may lead to long term production shutdown and consequently to multimillion losses.
