Genoil Produced Commercial Grade Low Sulfur Fuel Oil for a Shipping Client, Significantly Less Than IMO 2020 Sulfur Regulations
- Processing Confirms Earlier Data and Further Validates The Genoil GHU Technology - Pemex Crude Oil Desulfurization And Upgrading is Currently Underway at UFA And Nearing Completion
ROTTERDAM, NETHERLANDS / ACCESSWIRE / October 3, 2018 / Genoil Inc. (OTC PINK: GNOLF) announces successful processing of IFO 380 marine fuel oil at our feedstock processing facility in UFA Bashkortostan. The processing was done for an undisclosed shipping company who is based in Norway and which operates a topping plant adjacent to a significant tank terminal in Rotterdam. The Genoil Hydroconversion technology produced commercial grade 0.39% LSFO (Low Sulfur Fuel Oil) from the marine fuel RMG-380 which originally contained a Sulfur level 2.01% by weight. The feedstock sample represents typical high sulfur heavy fuel oil (HSHFO) and contained refinery residues and cracked material. Genoil is using new and improved catalyst that considerably increases performance with much greater efficiency.
The data collected will support the engineering and design of commercial GHU facilities around the world. Genoil is currently arranging for further processing of additional crude oil and fuel oil for target projects currently being considered. To verify these LSFO results, additional demonstration runs are planned at UFA, one of which is for a leading provider of compliance, consultancy service and classification to the marine industry who will dispatch personnel to UFA to witness the processing of fuel oil in UFA. A fourth test will follow for a national oil company which currently has over one million barrels per day of heavy oil production.
The RMG 380 fuel oil processing yields and product quality has been confirmed and the results are as follows:
1. LSFO Sulfur level is 0.39% wt. (exceeding IMO 2020 regulations 0.5%)
2. High overall yield of desired fuel oil was achieved:
a) 94% wt. of marine fuel RMD-80
b) 92.3% wt. RME-180
c) 87.2% wt. RMG-380 plus 6 - 7% wt. DMX (light gasoil cut 200-250оС has sulfur content ~0,019% wt., Viscosity at 40°С ~1,8 сSt, Density ~849 kg/m3.
3. Gasoline cut IBP-200оС yield ~4% wt. Sulfur ~ 0,010 - 0,021 % wt.
Dr. Raushan Telyashev Senior Vice President of Genoil stated ″The Genoil GHU Technology is robust enough to cope with such difficult cracked materials and residues such as fuel oil. We now have proven GHU technology can process a wider range of different feedstocks for many different GHU applications.″
About The Genoil Hydroconversion Upgrader:
The Genoil Hydroconversion Upgrader (GHU®), is an advanced upgrading and desulfurization technology, which converts heavy or sour crude oil into much more valuable light low sulphur oil for a very low cost. The GHU achieves 96% pitch conversion and 95% desulfurization with an operating cost of up to 75% less than the competition. For Conoco Canada Ltd, Genoil converted their bitumen of 6-8.5 API and converted it to 24.5 API. We also removed 92% of the sulphur reducing the amount from 5.14 % to below 0.24%. These results were taken by Conoco Canada Ltd, who had them analysed by Core Laboratories, one of the largest service providers of core and fluid analysis in the petroleum industry.
