Hydrocarbon Processing, the downstream sector's leading technical publication, has announced the finalists for its fourth annual awards ceremony. The awards program honors the downstream energy segment’s leading innovations, as well as outstanding personal contributions to the industry. CPFD Software is once again grateful to be nominated as an HP Awards Finalist. The awards cover 15 key categories in the hydrocarbon processing industry, and this year CPFD Software’s proprietary Barracuda Virtual Reactor® technology has been nominated as a finalist in the category of Best Software Technology.

”It’s exciting to hear the success stories from our clients using Barracuda Virtual Reactor software and services. CPFD’s technology has become the global standard for addressing FCC regenerator issues such as afterburn, emissions, erosion, catalyst circulation, and catalyst losses, and the rapid application expansion to other components of the FCCU (risers, strippers, standpipes, etc.) and deployment for other petrochemical processes is following the same trajectory of success. This recognition by Hydrocarbon Processing’s advisory board is truly an honor.”
          - Peter Blaser,
            Vice President, CPFD Software
