Xebec (XBC) subsidiary, HyGear, has commissioned a hydrogen generation system for Turkey’s first lubricant recycling plant.

TAYRAŞ’ used lubricant recycling plant is the first of its kind in the country and will be key to reducing Turkey’s emissions from API Group II base lubricating oils.

Approximately 560 kg of hydrogen per day (205 tonnes per year) will be delivered under 125 bar over a 15-year gas-as-a-service contract.

The hydrogen will be used to hydro-treat the oils and remove sulphur, chlorine, nitrogen, phosphorous, silica and saturation of aromatics employing special catalysts.

TAYRAŞ’ plant can process 60,000 tons of used lubricating oil per year, which will yield 45,000 tonnes of Group II base oil (N70, N100, N220). 

According to Kline & Co., approximately 50 per cent of used motor oil is re-refined in Europe. This amount falls to between 10-15 per cent in North America. In Turkey, Petder estimates it to be as little as 7 per cent.

Marinus van Driel, President of Xebec Europe, commented,

“This was a significantly large sized project for us and a unique one to be involved in within our reference installations. TAYRAŞ’ re-refinery shows the importance of securing local supply and reducing the carbon footprint of oils through recycling. Our on-site hydrogen offers the lowest cost and emissions option by cutting out the transportation and liquefaction steps from centralized hydrogen supply. In addition, we were able to showcase our expertise in compression by operating at an impressive 125 bar on a 24/7 basis. This level of operation will lend well to other applications such as hydrogen refueling stations where this pressure and reliability is also needed.”

Xebec is a global provider of clean energy solutions for renewable and low carbon gases used in energy, mobility and industrial applications.

Xebec (XBC) is up by 1.23 per cent, trading at $4.12 per share as of 11:17 am ET.
