REEC’s patented process has been operating successfully and profitably since 2012 applied on a wide range of residual streams such as drill cuttings, used and slurry oils and extra heavy crude or bitumen. Its proprietary sacrificial catalyst allows for the processing of complicated feedstocks with over 5% Sulphur, >2000 cSt viscosity and 15% Conradson Carbon, consistently achieving >90% yields of a significantly upgraded product and minimal coke production. The “before and after” SARA analyses of the treated streams evidence the chemical transformation that occurs as a result of the hydrogen donation that takes place in the REEC process.

  • Used oils
  • Residues
Applications
  • Heavy crude pre-processing
  • Orphan refinery streams
REEC’s “green-tech” process has been operating successfully and profitable since 2012. Applied on everything from drill cuttings to used oils and bitumen, its proprietary sacrificial catalyst allows for the processing of complicated feedstocks with over 5% sulphur, 1000 cSt viscosity and 15% Con Carbon. The “before and after” SARA analyses of the various treated streams, confirm the chemical transformation that occurs during the Flash Pyrolysis Catalysis process.

Applications
Applications

SAMARIA HEAVY CRUDE

  • Significant reduction in impurities

Applications

MAYA CRUDE

Applications

HEAVY CRUDE DILUENT REPLACEMENT

  • Typically, naphtha or diesel used as diluent to make crude jumpable
  • Diluent material needs to be recovered and reused
  • Well head application of our technology removes the need for diluent recycle and prevents asphaltene precipitation
