In the world of refineries you’ll see a multitude of equipment, processes and choices that can have both an environmental and financial impact. The hydroprocessing catalysers for refineries are one of the integral components in this orchestra. They are the hydroprocessing catsalysts used by refineries. Their primary task is to assist in the conversion of crude oil to usable fuels. However, a new subplot is catching on with industry giants. The question is, however, how to measure the financial benefit of such a decision? So let’s do some math – extra resources!
Consider a previously used catalyst. You may think it looks dull but there is gold in it. In many cases, there are valuable metals within, like palladium, platinum or nickel. By recycling these precious metals and letting refineries extract them, they can be sold or reused. Ka-ching! It’s time to start saving!
Next, we’ll look at the alternatives to recycling. Those are new catalysts. While new may sound appealing, there is a price to pay. It’s not just the cost of new metals, but also shipping and production costs. These costs can be avoided by refining, and embracing the circular economy, which is eco-friendly while also being pocket-friendly.
Recycling can help you reduce your downtime. Imagine ordering, shipping, and integrating new catalysts in comparison to rejuvenating your existing ones. It is said that time equals money. The fast pace of the refining industry is a perfect example.
It gets better! Refineries are able to increase operational efficiency through the optimal use of catalysts. This allows you to get the most out of your feedstock. Like squeezing all the juice out of a orange, you don’t want to waste any.
As you add all this up, it is clear that catalyst recycling offers many benefits. In the long run, it is a good investment both for the earth and your bottom line.
