The DuPont 2017 Best Practices Workshop (BPW) to be held in Ojai, California from May 1-4, 2017, marks the event’s 30th anniversary, attracting new and returning participants every year. Over the years it has grown in size to bring together as many as 100 participants looking for sulfuric acid alkylation training and the latest technology innovations from DuPont.

Designed to address all aspects of sulfuric acid alkylation, the 2017 workshop will examine topics from regulatory challenges to today’s market conditions, and alkylation chemistry to equipment reliability and inspection. New in 2017 is an Operations Roundtable session in which operators will have the opportunity to discuss specific troubleshooting scenarios. Discussions in this new session will focus on how to identify a unit upset, how to respond and where to look for root causes.

The workshop further covers topics including technology configuration and selection, technical design considerations, operations and maintenance, as well as technology troubleshooting and performance optimization. Led by STRATCO® subject matter experts, this workshop is ideally suited to technology specialists, engineering supervisors, engineers and operations personnel.

“BPW was a tremendous experience. It provided the ideal forum for learning and information sharing among the top subject matter experts in the business. Attendance will definitely enhance the performance of your Process/Operations Team,” said 2015 participant Vivayanand Soobnarine, team leader at Petrotrin Refinery in Trinidad.

Jeannie Branzaru, marketing and communications leader for DuPont Clean Technologies, said, “We are fortunate to have the best customers in the world. Time and time again we hear that one of the best parts of our workshop is the interaction that participants have with one another. Where else can you get a large group of alkylation experts and practitioners in the same room? The enthusiasm and passion our customers bring to this event always ensures lively discussions and workshop success. We can’t wait to see everyone again in California!”.
