“We explore future avenues of energy generation and storage to ensure we continue to meet demand in the evolving energy landscape.”

Phillips 66 has created a new sorbent-based technology that is proven to be a very cost-effective alternative for refineries struggling to fulfil selenium discharge limitations. Existing selenium removal technologies are complex, expensive, and frequently ineffective, especially given the possibility that selenium discharge limits will continue to tighten.

Phillips 66’s technique is a simple, fixed-bed process that looks and operates similarly to many other refinery processes. It requires little people and uses simple chemistry. Both of these factors result in low-cost, long-run-time operations. Phillips 66 provides selenium separation from refinery water streams consultancy and licencing of selenium removal technology through its technology.
