Making petrochemical applications more sustainable

The demand for petrochemical products is increasing with a growing demand for products like packaging material, plastic bags, household appliances, and automobiles. As a result, we have seen an increase in fossil fuel-based petrochemicals. But thanks to decarbonization efforts, we have also seen a rise in carbon capture and renewable or recycled feedstocks . At Alfa Laval it is our job to boost energy efficiency in existing plants, while supporting the growth of fossil-free alternatives.

Fine chemical production

Fine and specialty chemicals like surfactants, water treatment chemicals, pesticides, polymer additives, resins, adhesives, vitamins, and other substances, are produced in smaller volumes than their bulk chemical counter parts. This means consistency and quality are key. Alfa Laval has been working closely with petrochemical producers to provide reliable, cost-efficient, and specialized technologies that optimizing heating, cooling, condensing, re-boiling, and heat transfer for consistent, energy efficient, results.
