Value Proposition

There are many unique ways to use the Refinery Calculator to help you meet your needs

Bring us your problem and allow the Refinery Calculator to be apart of helping you generate a solution for your clients. If you desire, please contact our support group to have a support specialist reach back out to you to determine how we can help you solve your unique problem. Some of the creative uses of the Refinery Calculator:

  • Analyzing European Refineries and the impact of them switching from steam methane reforming-based hydrogen to “green” hydrogen
  • Calculating the estimated carbon dioxide emissions from all California refineries
  • Determining the quantity of water consumed from all US based refineries to help water treatment chemical suppliers formulate a forecast
  • Determining the economic and capital cost impact of refineries performing debottleneck projects and unit expansions
  • Evaluating at risk refineries due to economic conditions
  • Figuring out which set of crude slates are best suited operationally for a refinery
  • Evaluating the economic “switching costs” from “brown” hydrogen sources to “Green” hydrogen or renewable hydrogen sources
  • Refinery calc can quantify over the fence requirements for green hydrogen
  • The impact of reduced CO2 using renewable hydrogen for refineries
  • Predicting hydrogen consumption for global refineries
  • Quantifying global hydrogen demand based on crude selections and other pricing information
