Evoqua, the global leader in helping municipalities and industrial customers protect and improve the world's most fundamental natural resource: water, announced it has been chosen to provide carbon adsorption equipment for the $2.1 billion Sohar Refinery Improvement Project (SRIP) in Sohar Port, Liwa, Sultanate of Oman.

Scheduled for commissioning in late 2016, the SRIP project will add five new units to the Sohar refinery, improving its production volume, environmental performance and ability to process heavier Omani crude oil. Evoqua will provide the equipment to an energy contractor of the EPC directing the project for Orpic, the owner of the refinery.

Evoqua has been asked to provide Vent-Scrub® Vapor Phase carbon adsorption systems, proven to be the simplest and most cost-effective way to treat malodorous and VOC emission problems. The systems will be used for removing hydrogen sulfide, mercaptans and other sour gases created as byproducts of the refining process.

The contract includes eight Vent-Scrub VSC-200 units, four VSC-2000 units, and two VSC-8000 units, to be manufactured at Evoqua's facility in Red Bluff, CA and distributed through Evoqua's Singapore operations. In addition, Evoqua will supply nearly 15 tons of its sustainable VOCarb 48C coconut shell-based granular activated carbon (GAC). The granular shape of this GAC maximizes its geometric surface area, significantly increasing its ability to adsorb VOC's.

"This project will help Orpic reach the next level in responsible energy production," said Chris Rinaldi, VP and General Manager, Evoqua Environmental Solutions. "We're proud to be part of this important growth effort that is committed to sustainable practices."
