KBC drew on its experience in developing process models that use test-run data to reflect actual operation. Using Petro-SIM software, these models integrated new and existing process units to allow for an assessment of various modes of operation.
We produced pre-design documentation and then developed two options for comparison and ranking:
- Removal of benzene precursors from naphtha feedstock;
- Benzene removal from reformate products.
KBC demonstrated that proposed unit revamps would meet objectives prior to proceeding to basic engineering design activity. A clear strategy was set for the customer to handle benzene content reduction in gasoline.
