Once finalized the demonstration period in the upstream scenario and having demonstrated the feasibility of INTEGROIL solution in terms of process operation, the INTEGROIL pilot plant was transported to Turkey in August 2018, where it has been commissioned in the downstream demonstration scenario set at the premises of TUPRAS Izmit Refinery.

The fully automatized 1.5 m3/h pilot plant is conceived as a plug&play solution which together with the DSS system, make it easy to be transported, installed and operated. By the end of the project, foreseen in May 31st 2019, it will have been tested and optimized for about 15 months in two different real scenarios.
