Help customers meet future regulatory requirements, reduce operating costs, increase production capacity to achieve the selective removal of hydrogen sulfide, while minimizing co-absorption of carbon dioxide in gas flow in Ludwigshafen, Germany and Houston, Texas - Recently, BASF Europe and ExxonMobil Catalysts and Technology Licensing Co., Ltdjointly launched a new efficient and energy-efficient amine-based gas treatment technology named OASE® sulfexxTMThe technology is based on a newly developed proprietary amine-based solvent for selective removal of hydrogen sulfide (H2S) while minimizing co-absorption of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the flow of gas materialsTogether, the company has developed an amine-based solvent that helps refiners and natural gas processors meet increasingly stringent regulatory requirements while increasingly capable of increasing the capacity of existing equipment and reducing operating costsCompared with conventional amine-based gas treatment devices, the new facility can reduce the size of the equipment and reduce the initial capital investment. Dan Moore, President of ExxonMobil Catalysts and Technology Licensing, said, "This joint release demonstrates our ongoing commitment to work with our customers to deliver new technologies that meet their needsOASE® sulfexxTM is an attractive solution that helps operators meet future regulatory requirementsAndreas Northemann, Vice President of Gas Treatment at BASF, said: "New technologies will help our customers achieve sustainable development goals by reducing energy consumption and sulfur emissionsOASE® sulfexxTM's selective removal rate of hydrogen sulfixx is excellent - in this case, it's hard to find other products on the market that can match itThe solvent was tested several times at ExxonMobil and BASF and showed that OASE ® sulfexxTM had a higher selectivity of hydrogen sulfexxTM than methyl diethanolamine (MDEA) formulations and even better than ExxonMobil's FLEXSORB™ SE and SE Plus solventsA commercial demonstration of the technology at an exhaust treatment plant in North America further confirms this result. OASE® sulfexxTM will help break down the technical bottlenecks of existing Klaus exhaust treatment units, acid gas concentration and high-pressure acid removal devicesThe use of this technology in The Krauss exhaust treatment plant enables the product to contain hydrogen sulfide below 10 ppmv and reduces the absorption of carbon dioxide, enabling the unit to meet future emission requirements
