Market Drivers

High cost of HDS and resulting emissions
drives need for new technology

ODS is an environmentally sound technology and has significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions than HDS. The market drivers for ODS include:

(i) Sulfur regulations for gasoline, diesel and bunker fuel
(ii) Strong potential of ODS to achieve desired desulfurization levels down to < 10 ppm
(iii) High cost of hydrogen for HDS
(iv) High capital cost of HDS and
(v) High catalyst cost of HDS

The cost of ODS is projected to be significantly lower than HDS (Skov and England, Hydrocarbon Engineering, May 2007). The DS2Tech ODS process is projected to cost less than a third of the cost of HDS. These market drivers provide an opportune time to scale up and commercialize ODS processes.
