The concern of CO emissions

Fluor: Chaudhuri, D.  |  Gupta, V.  |  Kumar, V. S.

No refinery can operate without hydrogen (H<sub>2</sub>) because it is needed in all hydroprocessing technologies to remove sulfurous impurities and produce products at the correct specifications. With each passing day, the importance of H<sub>2</sub> in refineries is increasing as crude oil gets heavier and more sour while product specifications are simultaneously getting tighter.
