Neste Jacobs to implement production optimization to Forchem Tall Oil
Distillation Plant with NAPCON Controller

Forchem, an independent innovative company supplying industry-leading Tall Oil
products, has selected technology, engineering and project management company
Neste Jacobs, to optimize the production of its Tall Oil Distillation Plant
in Rauma, Finland.

The project is based on NAPCON Performance Analysis carried out during spring
2015. The analysis showed high potential for production optimization.
Production will be optimized with Neste Jacobs' proprietary state of the art
NAPCON Controller.

When the installation is finished by summer 2016, the goal is to increase the
throughput of tall oil rosin and fatty acids by 5-10%. Simultaneously the
energy efficiency of the production will improve. All this will be achieved
by applying NAPCON Controller resulting in more optimal and automated
operation of the process.

awarded further strengthens our position as a provider of high-level
automation solutions to chemical and biochemical process industries",
saysJarmo Suominen,
CEO of Neste Jacobs. "Our proprietary NAPCON solutions are the most advanced
in the world and designed to boost the performance. This delivery is a great
example of how we add true value to our customer's businesses", Mr. Suominen

processing technology and engineering and are now combining that expertise
with high-level automation technology. This makes us very excited to wait for
great results and attractive payback."
