A one-stop-shop for premium lubes and fuels production
In July 2011, UOP and ExxonMobil Research & Engineering Company (EMRE) created an alliance to offer integrated solutions for the production of lube base oils and high-quality fuels. This effort brings together leading UOP hydroprocessing technology, catalysts and equipment with EMRE Hydroisomerization dewaxing technology and other EMRE hydroprocessing solutions to produce high yields of low sulfur, ultra-clean diesel with excellent cetane and cold flow properties and lube base oils.
The alliance allows us to provide you with an integrated process design from a single engineering package to achieve impressive yields of fuels and lube products while optimizing your operating and capital costs.
Produce high yields of ultra-clean diesel
The integration of UOP Unicracking and Unionfining solutions with EMRE MIDW isomerization dewaxing technology drives impressive yields of high-cetane, ultra-clean diesel. Refiners will be able to upgrade the cold flow properties of distillate boiling range feedstocks and enable blending of distillate products to meet the stringent cold flow specifications required for certain regions.
Customers also have access to state-of-the-art hydrotreating catalysts available through the UOP hydroprocessing alliance with Albmemarle.
Integrated, cost-efficient lubes production
- The EMRE MSDW™ lube hydroisomerization technology upgrades lube blend stock by converting wax to high viscosity index (VI) lubes
- The EMRE MAXSAT™ lube hydrofinishing technology improves color and stability of lube blend stocks while also saturating polynuclear aromatics
- Other EMRE lube hydroprocessing technologies such as MWI for wax isomerization, RHC for raffinate hydroconversion, RHT for raffinate hydrotreating can enable solvent-based lube processing facilities to produce Group II and Group III lubes.
