UOP has announced that Navajo Refining plans to add a Continuous RVG Chlorsorb(TM) system to the CCR Platforming(TM) process unit in their Artesia, New Mexico refinery. The Continuous RVG Chlorsorb system captures chloride from the vent gas and recycles it back into the process, resulting in a 70% decrease in chloride consumption. The Chlorsorb technology provides a cost effective alternative to traditional caustic scrubbing by reducing capital, operating, maintenance, and spent caustic disposal costs.

Navajo Refining Company, L.P., located in Artesia, New Mexico, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Holly Corporation, an independent petroleum refiner. Navajo Refining's high-conversion refinery can process up to 75,000 barrels/day of a variety of high-sulfur (sour) crude oils and serves markets in the southwestern United States and northern Mexico.
