Due to reduced margins, higher energy costs and rising atmospheric carbon dioxide content, energy efficiency has never been more important in refining and petrochemicals. This is particularly true in the modern aromatics complex, which produces paraxylene (pX), benzene and other aromatics from naphtha.
The Israeli government tightened its health, safety and environment (HSE) regulations so that they now reflect the highest level in this field. As a result, PAZ Ashdod Refinery had to revamp their existing process gas compressors for hydrogen application in order to be compliant with the new strict HSE standards.
