Institute of Petroleum Processing was founded in 1986 whose predecessor was the oil refining teaching and research group. The major research field is the efficient and clean use of oil resources. The institute now has five groups: heavy oil processing lab, oil reaction engineering lab, comprehensive research lab for the development of oil, oil separation engineering lab and oil chemistry and technology lab.
Institute of Petroleum Processing in East China University of Technology is a research organization based on petroleum refining and petrochemical technology and to assume a large number of undergraduates, postgraduates and doctoral students to develop research work. Moreover, the institute has a great cooperation with international petrol company.
