Compact Membrane Systems (CMS) has unveiled Optiperm™, a membrane-based olefin paraffin separation technology, with a pilot system at the Delaware City Refining Company site in Delaware City, Delaware, US.
CMS claims that the technology represents a significant step in improving the way plastics and chemical precursors are produced and separated, saving energy and creating less waste.
The aim of the technology is to enable refiners and petrochemical companies to separate and concentrate olefins, and achieve significant return on investment (ROI) by removing bottlenecks, eliminating waste, and creating new value from existing streams, all while capturing energy savings and reducing carbon footprint.
CMS is working in collaboration with DCRC to test and demonstrate this new technology. DCRC has agreed to host CMS' Optiperm Technology Test at the Delaware City Refinery as part of DCRC's ongoing support of the Delawarebusiness community.
