Improving FCCU energy efficiency

Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions have become a growing concern for many industrialized countries over the past few years and confirmed with the Paris Agreement signature in December 2015.
Beyond the specific issue of GHG and general environmental considerations, there is a global tendency for improved energy efficiency. Indeed, whether the price of energy is high or low, controlled and reduced energy consumption will naturally improve operators’ margins.
In the particular case of Russia, Presidential Executive Order number 752 was passed in September 2013, stating that the volume of GHG emissions will have to be reduced by 2020 to 75% of the baseline set in 1990.
