The Impact of the Tier 3 Program
Tougher regulations are challenging refiners to produce higher quality products while trying to maximize efficiency. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is enacting Tier 3 requirements that will begin in 2017, requiring sulfur levels in gasoline to be 10 ppm or lower. In this whitepaper, you will learn how:
- Increased Hydrotreating and modifying crude slate are some of the levers that can be pulled to help lower sulfur levels in finished products.
- Hydrotreating catalyst life depends on the feed and operation of the unit. Increased monitoring will be critical in meeting these requirements and maximizing efficiency.
- WDXRF has proven to be a fast, easy, and precise method to measure sulfur in hydrocarbon streams.
