Lurgi starts up new H2 plant in Poland

By Gerald Ondrey |

Lurgi GmbH (Frankfurt, Germany; www.lurgi.com) has delivered, in less that 29 months, a new hydrogen unit to Grupa Lotos S.A.’s (www.lotos.pl) petroleum refinery in Gdansk, Poland. The plant designed and built on an EPC (engineering, procurement, construction) basis, went on stream in the last days of September, and brings an additional 7 ton/h of H2 capacity to the site. The generated hydrogen will be used in refining processes serving the production of top quality oils and gasoline (at the hydro-desulphurization and hydrocracking plants). The plant is designed to work on three types of feed, LPG, light naphtha and natural gas (or a mixture of these raw materials).  The H2 plant is based on catalytic steam hydrocarbon reforming process, which takes place in the Lurgi Steam Reformer, at temperatures of over 850°C. H2 is separated from the syngas by PSA (pressure swing adsorption) technology.
