Ultraclean signs MoU with one of the largest energy infrastructure companies in North America.

May 30, 2022

Following months of hard work, we are very excited to be able to announce that Ultraclean have just executed a non-binding Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with one of the largest energy infrastructure companies in North America.

 

The MoU is for the construction of a 4,000 barrels per day (bpd) Ultrex® unit in the USA for the processing of diesel separated from transmix into ultra-low sulphur diesel (ULSD). 


The customer is one of the largest transporters of petroleum products in North America, operating an extensive pipeline network, transporting significant volumes of gasoline, diesel, and jet fuel.

 

When these multiple fuel products are distributed through the refined products pipeline, transportation mixing, or “transmix”, occurs. Transmix is an unusable mixture of gasoline, diesel and jet fuel that no longer meets the specifications of any original fuel product.


The customer currently uses distillation to separate the transmix products into gasoline and diesel. The separated gasoline can be sold in the USA as an on-road gasoline product. However, the separated diesel cannot be sold for on-road use because it has a sulphur content above the ULSD 15ppm limit. This diesel is currently sold by the customer into heating oil (predominantly) or marine diesel markets.


By utilising the Ultraclean Ultrex® solution, the customer will be able to create a significant uplift in the value of the separated low sulphur diesel by reducing the sulphur content to below 15ppm limit so it can be sold as ULSD.


We look forward to sharing more news about this exciting project as it moves forward.

Third party testing confirms Ultrex® solution produces a premium, low emission diesel which reduces environmental and human health impact

October 27, 2021

According to the World Health Organization, air pollution is responsible for about one in every nine deaths globally.

Polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) are carcinogenic and heavy exposure results in substantial risk of lung and skin cancer.

Ultra-low sulphur diesel produced by Ultraclean reduces: 

  • PAH to some of the lowest levels in diesel globally;

  • emissions of particulate matter that can lodge in lungs (i.e., PM2.5); and

  • sulphur and nitrogen which otherwise produce Sulfur Oxides (SOx) and Nitrogen Oxides (NOx),

while increasing the derived cetane number evidencing a cleaner burning diesel.

 

The result is a premium, low emission diesel which reduces environmental and human health impact.

Ultraclean signs MoU with Cepsa

28 May, 2019

Ultraclean Technology are pleased to announce that they have entered into a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Compañía Española de Petróleos, S.A.U. (Cepsa) of Spain.  Cepsa has refining capacity of 260,000 barrels per day. Cepsa is 82.5% owned by Mubadala Investment Company, the Abu Dhabi sovereign wealth fund that also owns interests in other refining groups.  The purpose of the MoU with Cepsa is to review whether the Ultraclean Technology could be applied at the Cepa refineries to reduce operating cost and carbon footprint.
