In 2019 RK Energy partnered with New Vacuum Technology (NVT) to assist in the design and fabrication of a modular solution to create an alternative way of refining petroleum through a process called “cold cracking”. Cold cracking is a technology that processes heavy oils more efficiently without the use of chemical or thermal methods and simultaneously provides usable products with far better quality over current methods. Cold cracking is produced by breaking long chains of hydrocarbons into shorter ones. RK Energy successfully built a solution that minimizes the footprint of the cold cracking process to less than 2000 square feet. It not only minimizes carbon footprint making it more environmentally friendly but also the risk associated with high pressures, temperatures and waste created through conventional refinery processes. It is not only cost-effective but also environmentally friendly.
