Foster Wheeler Buys CEntry Sulfur Recovery Technology From FLSmidth & Company
Dec 21, 2010 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) —
Foster Wheeler AG, announced that its Global Engineering and Construction Group has acquired the CEntry Sulfur Recovery proprietary technology from FLSmidth & Company.
The acquisition includes patents, know-how and skilled personnel.
The Sulfur Recovery technology is used to treat gas streams containing Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) for the purpose of reducing the sulfur content of fuel products and to recover a saleable sulfur by-product. The technology includes a sulfur recovery section based on the Claus process, an amine-based tail-gas treating section, an incinerator with waste heat recovery, and proprietary burners. With the need for low-sulfur transportation fuels, Foster Wheeler believes the demand for process units to reduce the sulfur content of refinery gas streams is sizeable.
“This addition to our technology portfolio is part of our strategic growth initiative and greatly enhances our ability to provide refiners with the process technology they need to meet increasingly stringent environmental and fuel product specifications,” said Umberto della Sala, chief executive officer of Foster Wheeler AG. “This technology addition is complementary to our long and successful track record of engineering and building a wide range of downstream projects, and can be leveraged into adjacent market sectors, such as gas processing, in which we are also active. The technology also will complement our other process technologies, including SYDECSM Delayed Coking, Solvent Deasphalting, Visbreaking and Hydrogen Production.”
The CEntry Sulfur Recovery technology is currently used by a number of US and international refiners.
Foster Wheeler AG is a global engineering and construction contractor and power equipment supplier delivering facilities and equipment.
