Total Refinery Antwerp has inaugurated a new gasoline desulfurization. This new production unit can significantly reduce the sulfur content of gasoline and anticipate new 2009 European specifications for motor fuels.

desulphurization unit represents a total investment of 90 million euros. Construction, which began in July 2003, took approximately 650,000 man / hours until the commissioning of the unit in October 2004. desulphurization unit uses a Axens Prime G process and features a capacity of 7880 tons per day. To date, this is one of the largest plants in the world using this process. It was designed for the treatment of gasoline and petrochemical complex in Antwerp from the refinery components, and other Total refineries in Europe. It is thus a good example of Total's commitment to increase the synergy between its sites. The inauguration was attended by Yves Leterme, Minister-President of Flanders, and Jean-Paul Vettier, CEO Refining -Total Marketing.
