Siluria Technologies and Wood launch the first process technology to convert low value offgas into refinery products

Siluria Technologies, a leader in developing disruptive process technologies for the petrochemical and energy industries, and Wood, a global leader in the delivery of project, engineering and technical services to energy and industrial markets, have announced the availability of the ModusTM process technology for petroleum refiners.


Jointly developed by Siluria and Wood, Modus provides a proven and cost-efficient, one step process to upgrade low value refinery off gases, otherwise burned for heat, into high value fungible refinery products. Modus expands revenue sources and ultimately increases profitability.


The Modus process is based on a commercially proven catalyst system which converts light olefins, such as ethylene and propylene often contained in refinery offgas streams, to high-quality gasoline blendstock with a 90+ octane rating and ultra-low sulphur content.


Modus can be readily integrated into existing refinery operations with minimal capital investment and operating impacts.  Based on standard modular design and construction, Modus can be rapidly deployed as a standalone upgrade during routine maintenance turnarounds or revamp projects.


Modus is now available to customers worldwide under standard industry licences.
