DuPont Add-On Plants Reduce Refinery Emissions

DuPont (NYSE: DFT) announced that it has opened a plant in El Paso, Texas, and is in the process of starting up a facility in Linden, N.J., that will help refineries reduce their environmental footprints.

DuPont is offering on-site spent sulfuric acid regeneration and sulfur gas recovery services that reduce sulfur dioxide emissions. The custom-designed DuPont facilities are built on refiners’ facilities to environmentally manage the sulfur gas processing while providing a cost effective and reliable sulfuric acid regeneration service for the refineries.

"Petroleum refiners are being challenged to handle higher sulfur crudes, reduce emissions in the refining process, and continue to expand production of alkylate to meet market demand for clean burning fuels," said Gary W. Spitzer, vice president and general manager of DuPont Chemical Solutions Enterprise. 

DuPont builds, owns, operates and maintains on-site sulfuric acid plants that regenerate sulfuric acid used in the alkylation process and convert refinery gases to sulfur products. In addition to the Texas and New Jersey units, the company has an existing plant in Delaware City, Del.
