Petrochemical Industrial Distillation (PID)

Our PID facility in Rotterdam provides independent distillation services to the petrochemical industry. With nearly 50 years of experience in toll distilling, we offer a unique proposition to the industry. Koole Tankstorage Botlek provides services including: R&D facilities, receipt and storage of feedstock and distillates, quality assurance, analysis and ancillary treatments such as caustic washing, blending of additives and decolorization.
Toll distillation is a cost-effective way to introduce a new product into the market without investing in additional production capacity. Furthermore, it can provide a solution for one-off products or products which are outside, or not included in, specifications. The PID serves both the mineral oil and the chemical industry. The portfolio includes oil majors, refineries, petrochemical producers as well as traders.
We currently operate four different multi-purpose distillation units. The total annual throughput capacity is well above 700,000 tonnes. Typical processed parcel sizes are between 1,000 and 20,000 tonnes. Our own laboratory provides quality assurance and can also perform test distillations to determine how to best process the products.
