Riyadh: Under the Saudi Vision 2030 implementation plan, significant progress has been made in the technology of converting crude oil into chemicals.
King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) and Saudi Aramco have achieved great success in the technology of converting crude oil into chemicals through joint research, the scientific magazine Nature Catalyst has published the preliminary results of the joint research.
According to the lesson website, access to technology that directly transforms crude oil into chemicals through an operation will have significant results. Cost and Aramco are working to improve the technology, replacing the traditional refinery’s rival technology.
Professor Donald Bradley, deputy chairman of the research project at Coast, said the technology to convert crude oil into chemicals would make a big difference in the way petrol is used. This technology can also increase the production of consumer goods in daily life and will have significant economic benefits.
According to Professor Bradley, gasoline has been used as fuel for decades. The new changing trend is to find alternative energy sources. Now with the invention of new technology, chemicals will become a substitute for petrol in the future.
Ahmed Al-Khawitar, a senior technology official at Aramco, said it was the beginning of a long-running joint research project with a senior scholar from Untouchable Technology Cost.
It should be noted that Aramco is striving for growth opportunities in the petrochemical sector.
Remember that the idea of converting crude oil into chemicals was given in Saudi Vision 2030.
