KBR and MHPS to enable pitch from ROSE technology

KBR and Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems, Ltd. (MHPS) have agreed to work together to enable the use of the pitch generated from KBR’s solvent de-asphalting (SDA) technology, ROSE®, for steam and power generation. Pitch is the residue stream left over from the ROSE SDA process once the high-value material has been extracted. The solution will be offered by KBR as AiGSSM (Asphaltene integrated Generation System).

KBR’s proprietary ROSE technology is the “bottom-of-the-barrel” solution to recover valuable products from crude oil. By working with MHPS, KBR will further extend the value delivered from ROSE technology by converting the SDA pitch into clean power. MHPS’ technology has three reference units in operation.

KBR’s ROSE technology is a highly reliable process that uses up to 60% less energy and consistently delivers a tremendous return on investment.
