- Hydrocarbon value chain optimization
- Energy consumption optimization
- Water and Waste Management
- Customer development and growth partnership
Specific enablers have also been identified to facilitate the
implementation of action plans developed for above four
Your Company is consolidating its position in potential hydrocarbon
value chain optimization avenues for sustainable development. The
pivotal emphasis is on recovering value from low value hydrocarbons
such as petcoke, refinery offgas and internal fuel oil.
After successful commissioning of the Phase-III major units such as
Delayed Coker Unit, Petrochemical grade Fluidised Catalytic Cracking
Unit (PFCCU), Diesel Hydrotreating Unit and the latest Polypropylene
Unit, MRPL''s product base has expanded to include Pet coke, Ultra Low
sulfur Diesel and Polypropylene. Your Company is establishing value
partners to expand market base and partner sustainable growth.
Your Company is also considering other sustainable options to utilize
the pet coke for firing in utility boilers to produce steam for power
generation along with capture of the associated pollutant - sulfur
molecule. This is expected to not only help in production of cheaper
power, but also ensure timely evacuation of this product from the
refinery complex. Another advantage envisaged is the reduction in
internal fuel oil consumption which is currently being fired in the
boilers, for upgradation into various lighter molecules like
Polypropylene, diesel etc. via the delayed coking route. In-house
feasibility study of the project with support from potential technology
suppliers is being taken-up.
Water and waste management is given top priority by Your Company to
reduce refinery''s impact on the environment. The refinery recycles more
than 70% of its treated effluents and has also been maximizing intake
of treated municipal sewage to reduce fresh water intake. The refinery
has also commissioned its sludge processing facility to effectively
address disposal concerns.
Your Company is also looking into the option of recovering valuable
ethylene from low value PFCC off gas and supplying into downstream
petrochemical complexes. Also, the recovered ethylene can be used as a
co-monomer along with propylene to produce hetero-polymers of
polypropylene for enhancing market value. The in-house viability study
along with the potential increase in profitability estimations are
being carried out with inputs from downstream petrochemical complexes
and ethylene recovery technology suppliers.
The Phase-III Refinery Complex Captive power plant facilities and some
of the process heaters are designed to burn Natural Gas as fuel. The
Phase-III Hydrogen generation unit is also designed to consume Natural
Gas as an alternate feedstock. The infrastructure to bring natural gas
to Mangalore is being assessed by various gas suppliers. Subject to
economics, utilization of natural gas will not only reduce SO emissions
but also open up the avenue of converting the low value internal fuel
oil into high value hydrocarbons.
