On this journey, Borealis has processed second generation renewable feeds at its petrochemical facilities. In this paper, we will describe the way Borealis has set up the process and the results of the tests that have been performed. This paper will focus on the preparations for the tests, including a detailed analysis of the feed, a risk assessment on furnace and recovery section, simulations performed to select the most suitable furnace and specific parameters that were monitored.
During the tests, follow up was done by monitoring these identified meters and analysers. Finally, the tests results were compared to the simulated values.
