VRMP will implement Honeywell UOP Penex process technolog
The facility uses Honeywell UOPs Penex process to produce isomerate, a high-value gasoline blending component, to produce environmentally-friendlier fuels with reduced emissions.
Honeywells UOPs Penex process upgrades light naphtha feedstock to produce isomerate, a cleaner gasoline blend-stock that does not contain benzene, aromatics or olefins.
The facility uses Honeywell UOP's Penex process to produce isomerate, a high-value gasoline blending component, to produce environmentally-friendlier fuels with reduced emissions.
As gasoline production evolves to meet new and more stringent product specifications, UOP s Penex process allows refiners to upgrade light naphtha feedstock to produce isomerate, a gasoline blend-stock which does not contain benzene, aromatics or olefins.
