ConocoPhillips [NYSE:COP] today announced its proprietary S Zorb™ Sulfur Removal Technology (SRT) will be installed at Giant Industries, Inc.’s Yorktown refinery in York County, Va. The refinery will use the 30,000-barrel-per-day (BPD) S Zorb unit to desulfurize gasoline blendstocks. Its design will allow for a flexibility of feedstocks from a variety of refinery sources, including light coker naphtha. Projected start-up is slated for 2007. The project will be managed by D-CŌK, a subsidiary of Triten Corp.

"We believe S Zorb SRT offers the advantage of removing sulfur from our gasoline pool while providing substantial economic benefits due to the flexibility of the possible feedstocks," said Leroy Crow, executive vice president, Giant Industries.
