Mazut is viscous dark-brown residue after processing oil or oil-like materials with distillation column.
With every passing day oil reserves are running out, and due to this fact there is a need to find alternative sources of energy. Processing of mazut is absolutely wasteless way of getting alternative energy.
Here are two stages of processing mazut:
1. First mazut is processed in pyrolysis equipment. The output of the products is:
- Pyrolysis oil – 80%
- Gas – 5%
- Oil coke – 15%
Pyrolysis oil after processing mazut (wide fraction) is a dark fuel oil and is more profitable to sell than mazut.
2. Second stage is distillation of pyrolysis oil (distillation column SARGAS). Output of the products:
- Diesel – 30%
- Gasoline – 40%
- Mazut – 30%
Mazut can be recycled again in pyrolysis equipment.
