The FCCU is no longer just a fuels producer but is producing petrochemical feedstocks, pretreating tar sands and producing biofuels.
The FCCU can change operations from the production of large volumes of gasoline blending components (up to 70 volume percent of the pool), to the production of large volumes of diesel blending components (up to 40 volume percent of the pool). The FCCU also produces approximately 110 barrels of product for every 100 barrels of feed. With this range of demonstrated flexibility and volume expansion, the FCCU is one of the most valuable process units in the refinery.
