Abstract

This paper explains the process work flow steps starting from the proof of concept of a new research technology up to the field demonstration considering a live example. We discuss the stages that are employed in ADNOC R&TD technology management process in assessing proposals, supervising projects progress, steering projects towards technology maturity. The example under study pertains to a research project which was awarded to Khalifa University (KU). The project attempts at solving high SO 2 emissions from old Sulfur Recovery Units (SRUs) in ADNOC Gas Processing. The subject project is research work involving development of a mixed metal oxide, highly selective regenerable adsorbent possessing high adsorption capacity of 6 to 8 mmol/g. We follow the progress of the new technology via the various steps of ADNOC R&D technology management process.
