CDTech awarded gasoline desulfurization contract

By Gerald Ondrey |

Catalytic Distillation Technologies (CDTech; Pasadena, Tex.; www.cdtech.com) has been awarded a contract by TAIF-NK OAO for the license and basic engineering of an FCC- (fluid catalytic cracking) gasoline-treatment unit, as part of an upgrade at its refinery in Nizhnekamsk in the Russian Federation. The FCC-gasoline-treatment unit reduces the sulfur content in gasoline to meet clean fuel regulations. TAIF-NK was the first of the 28 refineries in Russia able to meet the Federation’s technical regulations, including Euro-4 requirements, with 100% of its motor fuels. This additional unit, which utilizes CDTech’s CDHydro technology, will enable TAIF-NK to work towards meeting Euro-5 requirements.   CDTech’s CDHydro technology, which combines the reactor and distillation process into one piece of equipment, is a strategic fit with TAIF-NK’s staged approach for gasoline desulfurization.   CDTech is a partnership between Lummus Technology (www.cbi.com/lummus), a CB&I company (The Woodlands, Tex.; www.cbi.com), and Chemical Research and Licensing, a part of CRI/Criterion Inc., (www.cricatalyst.com) the global catalyst technology company of Royal Dutch Shell plc www.shell.com.
