UNITED ARAB EMIRATES: Eurotecnica touts award from Takreer for carbon black and delayed coker

Eurotecnica noted that its technology "sets new standards in terms of product quality and consistency and, most of all, environmental friendliness, but gave no details on capacity or other aspects of its award.

Takreer is currently expanding its Ruwais refinery in a project that will double its refining capacity and also includes a propane dehydrogenation unit that will convert propane to 500,000 t/y of propylene using UOP's C3 Oleflex technology.

UOP said the carbon black and delayed coker project will use its Unionfining technology to upgrade distillate-range petroleum fractions.  

The project is expected to be completed in 2014.
