KBR and MHPS to collaborate on valorization of solvent de-asphalting pitch

By Mary Page Bailey |

KBR (Houston; www.kbr.com) and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS; Yokohama Japan; www.mhps.com) have agreed to work together to enable use of the pitch generated from KBR’s solvent de-asphalting (SDA) technology, ROSE, for steam and power generation. Pitch is the residue stream left over from the ROSE SDA process once the high-value material has been extracted. The solution will be offered by KBR as AiGS (Asphaltene integrated Generation System).

KBR’s proprietary ROSE technology is a leading “bottom-of-the-barrel” solution to recover valuable products from crude oil. By working with MHPS, KBR will further extend the value delivered from ROSE technology by converting the SDA pitch into clean power. MHPS’ technology has three reference units in operation.

“We are excited to offer this combined solution to our clients to include electricity generation through SDA pitch-fired boilers,” said Doug Kelly, KBR President, Technology Solutions. “Our combined solution with MHPS will enhance the economic efficiency of plants and provide a new, environmentally friendly option for power generation.”
