Honeywell, ExxonMobil Team Up to Share Technology

Aug. 3, 2011
Solutions are for the production of lubricant oils and high-quality fuels.

UOP LLC, a Honeywell company, announced on August 3 that it has formed a licensing alliance with ExxonMobil Research & Engineering Co. (EMRE) to offer integrated solutions for the production of lubricant oils and high-quality fuels.

The agreement will provide a one-stop solution for refiners to maximize production levels of both lubricant oils and diesel fuel. The alliance brings together EMRE technology, used to produce lube base oils for use in motor oil, with UOP hydroprocessing solutions, which produce the high-quality feedstocks needed for lubricant production.

"By bringing together these two well-established portfolios, we are maximizing solutions to produce more and better products from each barrel of crude," said Pete Piotrowski, vice president and general manager of Process Technology and Equipment for Honeywell's UOP. "The integration of EMRE and UOP technologies allows refiners to achieve impressive yields of dewaxed fuels and lube products while optimizing their operating and capital costs."

UOP Unicracking hydroprocessing processes and catalysts upgrade crude oil to produce ultra-clean distillate products and lube oil feedstocks. UOP has been developing and licensing hydroprocessing solutions, including advanced catalysts and specialty equipment, for more than 50 years, with more than 200 units licensed in over 40 countries.
