‘Net zero’ Transition Goes Through 4IR’sTechnology

Regulation – refineries cannot exceed their permit for eCO2 emission

• 4IR’s technology can support emissions reduction across the entire refinery!

• CDU Optimization: (200,000 bpd) – Annual emission reduction: 8,400 tons eCO2

• FCC Optimization (100,000 bpd) – Annual emission reduction: 15,900 tons of eCO2

Regulation – renewable fuel standard sets a target of 5% to 15% of total fuel to be comprised of renewable fuels

• The main obstacles for creating sustainable fuel is the variety of the raw materials, which greatly reduces the effectiveness and expandability of the method

• With 4IR’s technologies, renewable fuels can be produced from a wide range of feed stock. Some examples of renewable fuels are Biodiesel (B100), Biodiesel Blending, Ethanol Based Fuels and other Emerging Processes such as: Hydro-diesel, Clean Slate and others

NMR Facilitates Optimization of Traditional & Renewable Fuel

Comparable infrastructure – Sustainable Fuels employ the same process units as in traditional crude oil distillation. Both require chemical reactions to convert the raw material into a usable fuel, such as cracking, hydro processing, or isomerization.

The same needs  – On-line, Real-time Process Data (essentially, analysis of the dark feedstock).

The same solutions  By using 4IR’s technology both facilities can monitor the process and optimize its efficiency.

Clean Fuels Applications:

Renewable Diesel

Renewable diesel is a diesel fuel made from a variety of solid, liquid and gaseous renewable feedstocks  using utilizing processes similar to traditional diesel fuel production from crude oil. Renewable diesel is a drop-in diesel replacement that meets the same standards as petroleum diesel.  Renewable diesel is produced through a high-heat, high-pressure processes of pyrolysis and hydrotreating.

Sustainable Aviation Fuel

Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is made from a variety of solid, liquid and gaseous renewable feedstocks and reduces carbon emissions for cleaner, more sustainable aviation transport. SAFs are produced through similar processes as renewable diesels. Approvals are currently underway to allow the use of 100% SAFs in aviation travel.


Biodiesel is a renewable, cleaner-burning diesel replacement from the conversion of natural and used plant and animal fats and oiis that can be used in existing diesel engines without modification. 

Biodiesel for Equipment Manufacturers

Biodiesel blends can be used according to engine manufacturers’ recommendations in any diesel engine without the need for modifications. All Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) in the United States support the use of at least B5 biodiesel blends (5% biodiesel), and most support B20 (20% biodiesel). Some support B100 (pure biodiesel).

Bioheat® FuelBioheat® fuel is a simple, smart solution for home heating. Bioheat® fuel is a blend of biodiesel and ultra-low sulfur heating oil.
