Honeywell’s UOP Hydrogen Purification Technology Selected For Clean Fuel Refining In Russia

Pressure Swing Adsorption System

Honeywell’s UOP announced that it has been selected by Haldor Topsoe to provide hydrogen purification technology for a new steam reforming unit to be installed at the Antipinsky Refinery in Tyumen, Russia.

UOP’s Polybed™ Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) System will recover and purify hydrogen to help the refinery meet the increasing need to produce clean transportation fuels such as diesel and gasoline. 

The new unit, which is scheduled to start operating in 2013, is part of the refinery’s plan to increase its capacity of crude oil processing by as much as 7 million tons per year. It will also enable the production of fuel products that meet the European Union’s Euro-5 emission standards aimed at reducing emissions from light duty vehicles.
