WP1 - Optimisation

Optimising and validating technologies for refineries

  • Solvent optimisation
  • Solvent and emission management
  • Dynamics and control
  • Evaluation of plastic materials

The primary objective is to optimise the solvent performance in terms of energy usage and solvent stability, including devising a solvent management strategy for the pilot demonstration in WP2. The solvent will be optimised for the selected refinery stacks and the control models tested and validated. Plastic construction materials will be evaluated as a means of lowering costs and controlling solvent degradation rates.
