The use of ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymers as additives for middle distillate cold
flow is an established practice with over 20 years of refinery experience.
Feeds that contain high levels of wax can constrain fuels blending and require expertise
in blend formulation to achieve the CFPP and other Cold Flow operability specifications.
Varied feeds and specifications change the interaction of the cold flow products
and monitoring and interpretation of results is important to enable a refinery achieve
The Cold-FLow.eu website provides calculation routines to assist refiners to interpret
and optimise cold flow applications.
