Chemistry

Changing feedstocks, high energy costs, and ever-increasing environmental regulation have dramatically changed  refinery and chemical monomer plant operations.

Environmental pressures are particularly acute in this sector given the dwindling supplies of natural reserves and the effects of climate change. Increasingly severe environmental protection laws dictate cleaner refining processes and fuels, coupled with lower emission levels. This is particularly challenging given the dwindling quality of crude oil reserves, as evidenced in rising sulfur levels.

In addition, globalization is raising the efficiency bar. Capital investment constraints are encouraging refinery operators to look for alternative ways of increasing efficiency, reducing bottlenecks and capitalizing on lower-grade crude. Industrial gases can play a vital role in meeting these challenges.
