CEPSA BOOSTS PROFITABILITY THROUGH FCC CATALYST SELECTION
Grace provided a customized FCC catalyst and dedicated and proactive technical support to Cepsa's Gibraltar refinery. This effort allowed the refinery to maximize propylene and isobutylene yields, enhance LPF production, maintain gasoline yield, improve bottoms upgrading, and process heavier feed.
ART FCC PRETREAT CATALYSTS PROVIDE SUPERIOR TECHNOLOGY, PERFORMANCE
Advanced Refining Technologies (ART), Grace's joint venture with Chevron, steps up to meet the challenges of clean fuels regulations. Adding 586 DX® and 486 DX® catalyst to ART's ApART® Catalysts System technology enhances the flexibility and performance for FCC pretreating.
ADDITIVES REDUCE SULFUR CONTENT IN FCC NAPHTHA
The Axion Energy refinery in Argentina conducted a commercial trial in
its FCC unit, using Grace's GSR®-5 catalytic sulfur reduction technology. The
trial proved that the use of catalytic additives to reduce sulfur in gasoline
is a viable alternative for the refining industry challenged to produce a
greater volume of fuel at the highest quality standards.
