Yaroslavl refinery Slavneft-YANOS launched commissioned a new diesel hydrotreater capacity of 1.5 million tons / year.
Building installation was started in 2010, the cost of the project — 6.3 billion rubles.
The plant operates on Technology and Prime D designed for commercial diesel fuel component, characterized by an increased cetane index, as well as ultra-low sulfur (less than 10 ppm).
The project is set to introduce Neftekhimproekt under license of the French Axens.
Entering the unit will allow a 4% increase production of diesel fuel Euro-5, as well as to launch a project to translate one of the existing hydrotreating process for dewaxing, which will continue to ramp up production of winter diesel fuel.
Add that Slavneft-YANOS recently put into operation a new modular installation of Flottweg sludge processing capacity of 5.12 m3 / h
Sludge — a complex physico-chemical mixtures, which consist of oil, solids (clay, metal oxides, sand), and water. The ratio of the components slime elements can be very different.
Oil sludge formed during the processing, production and transportation of oil. This waste is very dangerous for the environment and must be disposed of or recycled.
Full installation will satisfy the needs of the enterprise in the recycling of waste generated during the production of petroleum products, and will replace the obsolete and outdated similar setup ALFA Laval, which was operated at the plant for about 25 years and is now decommissioned.
Feature of the technology offered by Flottweg, is a single-stage separation of oil sludge into three components: the oil phase, water and solid residue.
In this case, the oil phase is returned to production, the water after passing a thorough cleaning at wastewater treatment plants is discharged into the enterprise spillway channel, the solid residue is used for reclamation.
The content of hydrocarbons in the oil phase is 98-99%, which demonstrates the high efficiency of the technology.
Slavneft-YANOS in the period from 2013 to 2015, plans to send to the development and modernization of more than 37.1 billion rubles.
