Introduction

As refiners and chemical producers worldwide see higher crude oil and feed prices and continued demand for clean transportation fuels and lower production costs, a sound knowledge of clean fuel technology, specifications, standards, analysis, and quality monitoring is essential to understand its effect on engine performances as well as the emissions impact on environment.

This GLOMACS training course has been developed to provide an in-depth, yet a practical review of the art and science of "Clean Fuel Technology and Standards" in modern refineries. The program’s content is both comprehensive and wide-ranging.

In addition to the scientific procedures and contents of this course, many case studies and implementations are planned to be presented in an open discussion forum with the participants. 

This GLOMACS training course provides both theoretical and practical knowledge and skills highlighting:

  • Fuel quality fundamentals
  • Fuel production technologies
  • Euro 5 and Euro 6 fuel specifications
  • Gasoline specifications
  • Jet Fuel specifications
  • Diesel specifications
  • Fuel quality monitoring system

Objectives

At the end of this GLOMACS training seminar, you will learn to:

  • Describe clean fuels chemistry, manufacturing technologies, and standards
  • Compare testing parameters for gasoline, jet fuel, and road diesel
  • Explain how fuel properties influence engine performance
  • Explain ultra low sulfur diesel properties and their impact on fuel performance
  • Troubleshoot quality problems and contamination of fuels
  • Discuss fuel quality monitoring system

Training Methodology

A highly interactive combination of lecture and discussion sessions will be managed to maximize the amount and quality of information, knowledge and experience transfer. The sessions will start by raising the most relevant questions, and motivate everybody finding the right answers. The attendants will also be encouraged to raise more of their own questions and to share developing the right answers using their own analysis and experience.

Participants in this seminar will receive thorough training on the subjects covered by the seminar outline with the Tutor utilizing a variety of proven adult learning teaching and facilitation techniques.

Organisational Impact

  • This course will emphasize clean fuels chemistry, manufacturing technologies, blending, distribution, handling and troubleshooting techniques that would lead ultimately to improved fuel utilization, optimization, and enhanced organizational economics
  • Many aspects of clean fuel production operations and management can be improved including, product qualities, monitoring, and safety
  • This course will guide the participates to develop key concepts and techniques for the refining of petroleum processes and clean fuel manufacturing economics. These key concepts can be utilized to make operating decisions that can improve the overall refinery performance and economics

Personal Impact

By attending this GLOMACS training course, you will be able to:

  • Understand clean fuels chemistry, manufacturing technologies, and handling
  • Increase fuel efficiency keeping safety as a prime consideration
  • Improve On-Time performance while reducing operational expenses
  • Conduct a "Fuel Efficiency" audit of your organization
  • Develop Fuel Efficiency Program Evaluation tools
