All are supplied by 122 ...

  • Refinery flare gas H2S removal

    A major Gulf Coast refinery was searching for a solution to reduce flare gas SO2 that was resulting from very high H2S concentrations during periodic venting events. Original considerations were limited to very costly upstream equipment changes or a sulphur recovery unit, all costing tens of millions of dollars. Macrotek was contracted to design and build a cost-effective H2S ...
