About Hydroprocessing Course 2024

Enhance your hydroprocessing knowledge with our comprehensive program that covers a wide array of topics, such as understanding the hydroprocessing catalysts, reactor internals and the fundamentals of hydroprocessing units for wide variety of feedstocks, as well  as techniques for selecting the right catalyst for your hydroprocessing unit. 

Who should attend?

The course is designed for refinery engineers who work with hydroprocessing and related catalysts and processes, as well as more experienced engineers interested in a refresher course. A further major benefit is the opportunity to discuss with Topsoe experts about specific technical and operational issues.


Facilitated by Topsoe technical experts with many years of experience between them, the course will cover a wide range of topics associated with hydroprocessing. These include:

  • Hydroprocessing reactions
  • Reaction kinetics and feedstock dependency
  • Catalyst preparation and selection
  • Effect of operating conditions - optimize your performance
  • Understand your hydrotreater and hydrocracker layout
  • Catalyst loading and activation, monitoring, and troubleshooting
  • Pressure drop control
  • Renewable fuels and dewaxing

In addition to theoretical sessions, our course features a practical day on day 2, where participants have the option to either visit our state-of-the-art R&D facilities or attend a workshop on troubleshooting and handling emergency situations. By visiting Topsoe's R&D facilities, attendees will gain valuable insights into the cutting-edge technologies and research that drive the hydroprocessing field forward. Meanwhile, the workshop provides participants with the necessary knowledge to effectively optimize and troubleshoot their hydroprocessing units, ensuring smooth and efficient operations at their units

The program also incorporates a "Renewable Afternoon" to provide a comprehensive introduction to processing renewable feedstocks and revamping units for renewable fuels.
Please note that this program is preliminary and may be subject to minor changes. A more detailed program with specific session titles and times will be sent out to the participants when we get closer to the course.
