This type of work must conform to particular occupational safety and health requirements and also requires specific training and experience ... >>

Catalyst handling in refineries, as carried out nowadays, does not have a very long tradition in Europe. It was only towards the end of the seventies that this method originating in the U.S. was established in Europe as a response to increasing quality demands on petroleum products and the use of catalysts. Since about 1990 the significance of handling quality, the time constraints, the legal and compliance requirements concerning safety standards for work under nitrogen conditions as well as environmental protection concerns have greatly increased.

Interruptions in the production cycle due to catalyst replacement in a cat cracker plant have dramatically fallen compared to the past.
