UOP, ExxonMobil form licensing alliance for fuels and lubes

UOP LLC, a Honeywell subsidiary located in Des Plaines, Illinois, U.S.A., is forming a licensing alliance with ExxonMobil Research & Engineering Company (EMRE), allowing both companies to offer an integrated solution to refiners in the production of lubricating oils and fuels. This new combined approach could provide refiners with a way to maximize production levels for both lubricating oils and diesel fuel. Under the agreement, EMRE technology will be combined with UOP hydroprocessing solutions as an integrated process design solution. “By bringing together these two well-established portfolios, we are maximizing solutions for our customers to produce more and better products from each barrel of crude. The integrated solution offered by EMRE and UOP technologies allows refiners to achieve impressive yields of dewaxed fuels and lube products while optimizing their operating and capital costs,” said Pete Piotrowski, vice president and general manager of Process Technology and Equipment for Honeywell’s UOP.
