Alfa Laval empowers refiner’s formula for energy efficiency at AsiaTech

For more than 20 years ASIA-TECH has gained recognition from the industry as a leader in downstream events for the Asia region.

Held under the theme “Meeting Growing Energy Demand during the Energy Transition”, ASIA-TECH will reflect the key industry developments and will address topics on both downstream decarbonisation and conventional refining & petrochemicals technologies such as refining & petrochemical integration, resid upgrading, sustainable fuels, emission reduction and circularity, backed with practical case studies and insightful market forecasts and panel discussions.

The event to be held at Meliá Hanoi will attract over 200 industry professionals, representing major refining & petrochemical producers from across the Asia region and some of the world’s leading technology and solution providers.


Boost your refinery’s energy efficiency with Alfa Laval

Energy is essential for many refinery operations and can account for as much as 50% of total operating costs.

This energy is not only expensive – its production also has a vast environmental impact. Soaring energy costs and global environmental concerns about emissions of greenhouse gases, along with the highly competitive market for refinery feedstocks and products, all put constant pressure on refineries to operate more efficiently and more economically.

Welded plate-type heat exchanger technologies pioneered by Alfa Laval can exploit energy inputs much more effectively than traditional solutions in association with superior hydraulic characteristics, replacing traditional technologies such as bulky shell-and-tube units and energy wasting air coolers.

Meet the Alfa Laval experts to discuss how to achieve:

  • greater production throughput
  • energy conservation via heat recovery
  • reduced emissions
  • lower CAPEX and OPEX
  • less downtime and reduced maintenance
  • improved operating costs
