DuPont Clean Technologies Help Oil Refineries


As part of its new Clean Technologies solutions, DuPont Chemical Solutions Enterprise (DCSE) has started up a plant in El Paso, Texas, and is in the process of starting up a facility in Linden, N.J., that will help refineries reduce their environmental footprints with on-site spent sulfuric acid regeneration and sulfur gas recovery services with significant reductions in sulfur dioxide emissions.

The custom-designed DuPont facilities that are built on refiners’ facilities will provide for efficient and environmentally superior management of the sulfur gas processing while providing a cost effective and reliable sulfuric acid regeneration service for the refineries.

“Petroleum refiners are being challenged to handle higher sulfur crudes, reduce emissions in the refining process, and continue to expand production of alkylate to meet market demand for clean burning fuels,” said Gary Spitzer, vice president and general manager, DCSE. “DuPont’s Sulfuric Acid Regeneration-Sulfur Gas Recovery offering allows refiners to cost effectively meet these challenges with state-of-the-art technology and facilities, backed by DuPont expertise in safe and reliable operation.”

DuPont builds, owns, operates and maintains on-site sulfuric acid plants that regenerate sulfuric acid used in the alkylation process and convert refinery gases to sulfur products. These plants reduce sulfur emissions and provide refiners with high levels of operational reliability. In addition to the Texas and New Jersey units, the company has an existing plant in Delaware City, Del.
