RN-Kart, the specialised catalyst production enterprise of Rosneft Oil Company, has performed industrial tests of the first batch of hydrotreating catalysts, which provide for the production of Euro V-compliant diesel, at the Company’s Ufa group of refineries. This is the first hydrotreating agent capable to fully replace its foreign peers for the Russian refining industry.
The month-long tests have shown that the catalyst ensures the production of diesel compliant with all the latest technical requirements. The catalyst is equal to the world’s best analogues and in some respects even surpasses them.
Rosneft pays special attention to the development of its own production of catalyst agents for oil refining. It is the key area to ensure the technical stability of the Company’s downstream operations and reduce its dependence on imported technologies.
The new RN-Kart LLC plant is not only able to meet the demands of Rosneft enterprises for catalyst agents for hydrotreatment but can also deliver them for commercial sale. In addition, the plant’s products will replace foreign analogues, thus increasing the technological stability, independence, and economic efficiency of the entire oil refining industry of Russia.
