1. Processing Technologies
(1) Development of Petroleomics Technology
In the midst of a decrease in the total demand for fuel oil, JPEC has been working on the development of Petroleomics technology which is regarded as a key next-generation technology of oil refining. Petroleomics enhances energy efficiency and saving, without requiring large-scale capital investments for realizing high-precision refining and cracking. This technology ensures molecular-level understanding of the compositions and the reactive properties of feedstocks, and thus helps to determine the most efficient method for producing target reaction products. In this regard, the most efficient production method means that the reaction process employed has various advantages including a reduction in the consumption of hydrogen and energy and also in the side reaction products.
1) Elemental Technologies Necessary for the Development of Petroleomics Technology
(a) Detailed Chemical Composition Analysis of Heavy Oil
(b) Molecule-based Kinetic Modeling
2) Technological Development of Petroleomics
JPEC has Petroleomics Laboratory for basic research and other laboratories for empirical research. Development and practical application of useful technologies are promoted through concurrent implementation of fundamental and experimental studies.
