Project title: "Innovative demulsifiers and corrosion inhibitors improving the energy efficiency of crude oil, natural gas and gasoline and limiting water and wastewater pollution in the refining and oil-field industries"




The project is co-financed by the National Center for Research and Development under Measure 1.1: R&D projects of the enterprises of the Intelligent Development Operational Program 2014-2020.

Contract No. POIR.01.01.01-00-0377 / 17

The project implemented from July 2018 to June 2021 together with INiG - PIB Kraków as a subcontractor

The following technologies are expected to be developed in the Project:

  • Innovative demulsifier for desalination of paraffin oil with an API index above 40 °, for electrodehydrators in refineries, which will effectively desalinate oil additionally preventing corrosion and sediment formation.
  • Innovative multi-functional demulsifier for breaking emulsions with aromatic asphaltene crude oil, with an API index below 40 °, for electrodehydrators in the oil mining industry, which will effectively separate the emulsion into pure hydrocarbon and water phases and reduce oil viscosity.
  • Innovative corrosion inhibitor for sea water for installation on oil rigs, which will protect against corrosion water injection systems back into the rock mass.
  • Innovative multi-functional demulsifier for breaking up oil / water W / O emulsion into two clean phases: oil and water, with additional anti-corrosive and anti-sediment properties.
  • Innovative reverse demulsifier, including a water clarifier, for breaking water / hydrocarbon O / W emulsion that will separate the emulsion into an aqueous phase and hydrocarbons, while preventing corrosion, the formation of paraffin and mineral deposits.
  • Innovative ecological demulsifier based on ecological solvents, containing ecological surface-active ingredients, especially of vegetable origin, which will separate the oil-water emulsion into the water and hydrocarbon phase; especially for use on drilling platforms.
  • Innovative multi-functional, high-performance corrosion inhibitor-demulsifier package for condensate deposits, whose task will be to simultaneously protect the installation against corrosion and effectively separate the extracted medium into clean phases: natural gas, oil, gasoline and reservoir water.

It is assumed that the project will result in a minimum of 8 product innovations implemented domesticaly and abroad, as well as min. 8 patent applications.
