Abstract: front page image
(EN)A sulfur species-containing feed gas is processed in a treatment plant in which COS is hydrolyzed, and in which so produced hydrogen sulfide and other sulfur species are absorbed in a lean hydrocarbon liquid. The sulfur species in the so formed rich hydrocarbon liquid are then subjected to catalytic conversion into disulfides, which are subsequently removed from the rich solvent. Most preferably, sulfur free lean solvent is regenerated in a distillation column and/or refinery unit, and light components are recycled from the rich hydrocarbon liquid to the absorber.
(FR)Selon l'invention, un gaz d'alimentation contenant des espèces sulfureuses est traité dans une installation de traitement dans laquelle le COS est hydrolysé, et le sulfure d'hydrogène et les autres espèces sulfureuses ainsi obtenus sont absorbés dans un hydrocarbure liquide pauvre. Les espèces sulfureuses contenues dans l'hydrocarbure liquide riche ainsi formé sont ensuite transformées en disulfures par conversion catalytique, lesquels sont ultérieurement éliminés du solvant riche. Mieux, un solvant pauvre exempt de soufre est régénéré dans une colonne de distillation et/ou une unité de raffinage, et les constituants légers sont extraits de l'hydrocarbure liquide riche et recyclés dans l'absorbeur.
