Air Emissions – VOC Control
In addition to regulations governing wastewater discharge, petroleum refineries often must comply with regulations on their air emissions, requiring control technologies for volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Activated carbon’s simplicity and reliability makes it ideal for air emission compliance. Jacobi supplies PetroSorb™ GXB (extruded coal based) and PetroSorb™ CS (granular coconut shell based) grades for VOC removal systems.
Refineries are often faced with remediating existing water sources prior to discharge due to legacy contamination or other factors. Jacobi’s AquaSorb™ series includes cost-effective grades with different pore size distributions for a wide range of site remediation applications, including AquaSorb™ CS, AquaSorb™ 80, and AquaSorb™ 90. Performing pilot studies will help to match the most suitable activated carbon to the stream to be treated.
Mercaptan Extraction And Fuel Sweetening
Activated carbon serves as a perfect substrate for impregnation with any oxidation catalyst used in the removal of mercaptans from high grade liquid fuels. Providing both exceptional product hardness, minimal fine formation in the treated fuel, and low volume density, Jacobi’s PetroSorb™ G-SWC80 meets all the requirements of this critical refinery process.
Gas Purification – Desulfurization Of Natural Gas
Sulphur is a common contaminant requiring removal from gas streams, whether it be for catalyst protection or the control of odorous emissions to the atmosphere. Jacobi’s AddSorb™ VA series and AddSorb™ Sulfox are suitable for sulphur removal in air or oxygen deficient atmospheres, with exceptionally high capacity and suitable for in-situ regeneration.
