ACHIEVE® FCC Catalysts

Grace is expanding its portfolio of catalysts to address the current market challenges, in particular to lower slurry yield to take advantage of distillate crack spreads as well as to address the trend towards increased residue and opportunity crude processing. Grace has developed new technologies through extensive Grace R&D program that addressed the octane debits encountered by North American refiners processing tight oil.

This R&D program resulted in advances to the following five functionalities to deliver the yield flexibility desired by refiners:
• Higher Diffusivity Matrices
• Flexible Hydrogen Transfer
• Higher Activity
• Advanced Metals Tolerance
• Dual Zeolite Functionality

Tailor-Made Catalyst Formulas Allow You to ACHIEVE® the Advantage Designing the best catalyst systems from these functionalities encompasses the Grace approach to customized FCC catalyst design. The new products will complement the products launched over the last two years that were focused on resid conversion and managing shale or tight oil feed stocks in the FCC. ACHIEVE® catalysts are fully compatible with all of Grace’s FCC additives and prior-generation catalysts.
