Utilization of residual heat in the raffinate stream


With the modifications made in this project, we managed to improve manufacturing efficiency by reducing the fuel used and emissions into the atmosphere.


Based on an energy analysis of the Molex II Unit, an important point of energy saving was identified.

A multidisciplinary team, made up of both its own personnel and external companies, has carried out both the engineering and the installation of new equipment / instruments and modification of the existing ones in order to adapt the Unit to the new mode of operation. 


Thanks to the modifications made, we have reduced the energy consumed in the process per unit of load. Making the manufacture of intermediate paraffins more efficient.
