New innovative Polyfuels technology at Petrobrazi Refinery
OMV Petrom, the largest oil and gas producer in Southeastern Europe, announces approx. EUR 60 million investment for a new unit to be built in the Petrobrazi Refinery, based on innovative Polyfuels technology developed by French company Axens. The new unit, expected to become fully operational at the beginning of 2019, allows the conversion of LPG components into gasoline and middle distillates, using a catalytic process.

"The implementation of the Polyfuels project, which uses innovative technologies to increase gasoline and diesel production, will give us a competitive advantage through increased output of high value products (white products) and a more flexible production structure", said Neil Anthony Morgan, OMV Petrom executive board member responsible for Downstream Oil.

The Polyfuels unit will allow for a shift in refinery production of up to 50,000 tonnes of gasoline and middle distillates from LPG components. The overall refinery capacity will remain at 4.5 million tonnes/year.

This new unit is based on the innovative PolyFuel® process, a technology which was developed by Axens, based on 50 years of commercial experience in the field of olefins conversion into fuels, having a track record of being a safe and clean technology.

The project consists of three main reactors, several adsorbers, columns and pumps. Due to the proper selection of main equipment and several heat-exchangers, the unit is designed for high energy efficiency. Construction is set to start in 2017; the unit is expected to be fully operational at the beginning of 2019.
