Fortrec has been partnering with refineries worldwide to divert refinery bottoms from incineration for over 20 years.
Each tonne that is diverted and repurposed helps our partners save approximately 3 tonnes of carbon dioxide from being emitted into the atmosphere. Over the lifetime of the company, Fortrec has facilitated savings of approximately 4 million tonnes of carbon emissions.
Staying true to our business model, we aim to create a more sustainable environment within the petrochemical industry while catering to the evolving needs of our consumers through innovation and collaboration with partners around the world.
Fortrec’s Group Chairman Dr Wilson Chew and CEO Mr Ajay Bhattacharya spoke to The Business Times on how Fortrec’s business model is helping refineries shrink their carbon footprint through the alternative application of the repurposed refinery bottoms.

“We repurpose refinery bottoms, preventing them from being incinerated, thus preventing tonnes of emissions. This process, although overlooked in the past, is now capturing greater attention due to global government initiatives aimed at reducing GHG emissions."
