High performance for rising demand

The global demand for products refined from crude oil is rising. Refinery processes are a critical part of the modern economy. As an industry involving the use of fossil fuels, operators are facing increasing environmental and economic pressures. The right investment decision can steel your business for a challenging market.


    Capture your unavoidable emissions

    Our modular approach reduces project complexity and lead times, mitigates risks, and keeps down CAPEX. MAN CCUS features modular compression solutions for all available capture technologies.

Clean high-end fuels and light hydrocarbons production

Refineries process crude oil into clean, high-energy content fuels and light hydrocarbons. In petrochemical plants, these are used as building blocks in the production of a wide range of polymers, paints, glues and materials used in modern products and appliances.

Crude oil composition is variable. Heavy crudes with long hydrocarbon molecules require splitting into lighter fuels in fluid catalytic cracking reactors (FCC). Sour crudes contain corrosive sulfur that is removed in hydrotreaters. The same process can remove nitrogen and aromatics. Hydrocracking units are used by many refineries to adjust the proportion of fuels to petrochemical feedstock. Our machinery is also used for alkylation units or delayed coking plants.

To meet environmental regulations relating to these processes and to increase profitability, refinery operators look towards CO2 capture and compression in order to reduce their CO2 footprint. MAN Energy Solutions machinery trains cover both bases for our customers.

Integrally geared compressors

Geisaco compressor

Our integrally geared centrifugal compressors are used for tailgas or syngas compression, for refrigerants, for high pressure CO2 processes and more. These compressors are exceptionally compact, minimizing the need for space. They are driven by an electric motor or a turbine drive. They are especially popular in the industry thanks to their ultra-high efficiency, flexibility and easy process integration.

Carbon capture, utilization, and storage


Petrochemical plants emit a lot of CO2 in flue gases. Capturing this CO2 allows it to be used and stored. Once purified, CO2 can be compressed and transported to facilities that use it to make synthetic fuels, beverages, dry ice, and chemicals. We also have ways of storing CO2 permanently underground. We provide the technology for compressing and liquefying CO2, and for heat recovery and heat integration to reduce costs at your plant.
