PetroBeam is an energy technology company and is the leading developer of electron beam processing techniques to upgrade heavy petroleum feedstocks. The Company is migrating a well established industrial process to the midstream and downstream sectors of the petroleum industry.
The PetroBeam technology is based on the fundamentals of electron beam (“e-beam”) processing, which is exposing a material to a directed shower of electrons generated from an accelerator similar to those used to treat cancer patients. The PetroBeam process consists of using high-energy electrons to effectively initiate hydrocarbon cracking reactions. E-beam processing is a versatile, industrial alternative to conventional thermal and thermal catalytic processing. E-Beam processing has a fifty year history of industrial success in a wide range of applications.
