Analytical Techniques, Methods & Laboratory Sustainability in Petroleum and Petrochemical Laboratories

The demands on the analyst from the petrochemical industry continue to focus on the quest for detailed characterisation of feedstocks, intermediates and final products across the value chain in order to reduce costs and maximise productivity and ultimately profitability. In recent years there a has been a number of developments in mass spectrometry and separation science instrumentation and software which has allowed laboratory analysts to routinely access capabilities which only a few years ago were the domain of the academic in their research laboratories. This conference will provide an overview of how these recent developments can be applied across the petrochemical industry to add value to the business.

  • Comprehensive analysis of the chemical signature of complex petrochemical mixtures: Thermal analysis coupled to photo ionization mass spectrometry and gas chromatography-high resolution-mass spectrometry - Prof Ralf Zimmermann
  • A more detailed understanding of petroleum using ultrahigh resolution mass spectrometry - Dr Mark P. Barrow
  • Novel Technologies for Petroleum Analyses - Dr Eleanor Riches
