Lummus Accelerates CO2 Reduction Goals Through Air Preheater Innovation
Technology strengthens decarbonization portfolio and builds on recent success
HOUSTON, September 7, 2022 – Lummus Technology, a global provider of process technologies and value-driven energy solutions, announced major advancements to the Lummus External Air Preheater (LEAP) technology. The latest innovations can significantly reduce CO2 emissions from cracking heaters at ethylene plants as well as other fired heaters.
“Lummus is committed to decarbonizing our entire technology portfolio, and these advancements underscore the continued progress we are making in meeting our commitments,” said Leon de Bruyn, President and Chief Executive Officer of Lummus Technology. “This announcement builds on Lummus’ recent launch of the industry’s first net zero ethane cracker, plus other innovations, that will help operators and producers lower emissions from their investments.”
Now available for commercial use, the LEAP technology can be applied to both new and existing heaters to help decarbonize some of the most carbon intensive petrochemical manufacturing processes. Some of the technology’s enhanced features include:
- lower fuel firing
- much higher thermal efficiency
