What does a hydro-processing consultant or hydroprocessing expert do? Hydroprocessing is the term used for a number of chemical reactions that take place as part of oil refining. These include hydrogenation, hydrocracking, and hydrotreating. Hydroprocessing consultants and experts can design processes using hydrogen to upgrade biofuels and renewable chemicals. Hydroprocessing is used to remove oxygen, sulfur, and nitrogen from biomass-derived feeds and renewables to produce drop-in feeds. A consultant can aid in the selection of appropriate catalysts, predict yields and hydrogen use, review or design process flow schemes, and estimate process costs. Particularly important is understand the effects of process unconventional feeds like biomass. See Biomass Energy Expert.
Large renewable energy consulting firms should have a hydro-processing consultant, as well as clean energy experts and energy consultants working in the more common areas like renewable fuels, biomaterials, biomass and biomass power, biomaterials, biochemicals, and biotechnology. They also have very specific green energy experts working in things like process simulation, agricultural waste, bioethanol, biodiesel from algae, carbon intensity, renewable energy technology, biomass power, polyethylene recycling, biofuels companies, reactor design, biomass production, beverage fermentation, industrial fermentation, pyrolysis oil, conversion technologies, green energy grants, renewable energy finance, biomass cost, ag-biotech, recycled polymers, waste to energy technology, product formulation, renewable identification numbers, the solid-state fermentation, hemp, biodiesel conversion, aspen modeling, industrial enzymes, hydrothermal carbonization, and ethanol biofuel.
Large renewable energy and biochemical consulting firms like Lee Enterprises Consulting will certainly have experts in hydroprocessing. They also offer a wide range of services in the general areas of biofuels, biochemicals, biotechnologies, biomaterials, synthetic biology commercialization, feedstocks, and hemp/cannabis, and will have specialized business and financial services like due diligence, feedstock availability, grants, and loans, and bio market research. A big consulting group like this should also offer technical and engineering-related services like techno-economic analysis, environmental evaluations, feasibility studies, risk analysis, and expert witness engagements, and have solid strategic partnerships in place to assist clients with insurance, legal, accounting, plant fabrication, feedstock procurement.
