KOCH REFINING COMPANY MASSIVE SULFER REMOVAL EQUIPMENT DELIVERY DELAYED

KOCH REFINING COMPANY MASSIVE SULFER REMOVAL EQUIPMENT DELIVERY DELAYED
 ROSEMOUNT, Minn., July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- The barge "Paul Bunyan" that was to deliver Koch Refining Company's 110- and 140-foot vessels that assist in sulfur removal on Thursday, July 23, or Friday, July 24, has been delayed in St. Louis and is now expected to pass through the Hastings Lock and Dam No. 2 on the Mississippi southeast of the refinery Monday, July 27, or Tuesday, July 29.
 An additional photo opportunity will tentatively take place between 4:00 - 5:00 a.m. on Tuesday, July 28, when a 40- axle vehicle will start transporting the equipment down Highway 52. Part of Highway 52 will be blocked off under the supervision of the Minnesota Department of Transportation to secure passage to the refinery.
 The massive cylinders, manufactured at a total cost of $8.5 million, are key components of systems that will remove sulfur from diesel oil and from the feed to the refining unit that converts heavy oil into gasoline. This will result in the elimination of 36,000 tons of sulfur emissions each year from vehicles throughout Minnesota.
 Koch began construction In March on an ambitious air emissions reduction program the Clean Fuels, that will reduce all SO2 emissions by an additional 40 percent, hydrocarbon emissions by 85 percent and particulate emissions by 50 percent. Construction will take 18 months.
 Koch Refining, a leading producer of transportation energy and other fuel products in Minnesota and Wisconsin, is a subsidiary of Koch Industries, Wichita, Kansas. Koch Industries employs more than 1,000 full-time workers in Minnesota - 900 at the refinery in Rosemount.
