KBR Launches SCOREKlean — a Zero Emissions Olefins Technology

| By Gerald Ondrey

KBR (Houston) announced today the launch of SCOREKlean, a proprietary ethylene and propylene process technology utilizing 100% hydrogen-fueled burners for zero emissions from the ethylene cracking furnaces.

By achieving zero emissions from ethylene cracking furnaces, SCOREKlean will play a major role to decarbonize the petrochemical industry, given that furnaces are the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions in the industry. Additionally, SCOREKlean delivers the inherent advantages of KBR’s SCORE technology including ultra-low CAPEX design, feedstock flexibility, and higher yields, the company says.

“We are excited to launch SCOREKlean, especially at a time when the petrochemical industry is going through a growth phase and also prioritizing decarbonization,” says Doug Kelly, KBR president, Technology. “By offering a zero-emission furnace solution, SCOREKlean enables our clients to balance their sustainability and growth objectives.”
