MIDW™ catalyst technology and services

Better diesel yield. High performance dewaxing with MIDW™ catalyst technology and services. ExxonMobil’s MIDW™ catalyst technology and services provide high yields of low cloud point diesel. The process uses a proprietary catalyst that converts waxy paraffins to higher performance molecules, as compared with older technologies that rely on cracking. This results in a much higher diesel yield, particularly for deep reductions in cloud point.

Growing commercial deployment
Currently, over 10 MIDW units are operating around the world, with more than five under design. While many MIDW units are located in colder climates (Russia, North America, Northern Europe), where there is a clear need for winter diesel, there are units in the Middle East, India, and Singapore that produce Euro V diesel for export. The ability to retrofit an existing unit with MIDW technology to capture significant value makes this one of the most attractive fuels technologies in the world today.

Flexible, adaptable applications
• Various grades of MIDW catalyst exist to suit unique refinery needs: catalysts for sweet or sour drop-in applications, as well as catalysts for standalone dewaxing reactors.
• MIDW catalyst grades are tailored to meeting refineries’ specific cold flow specifications.
• Integration with complementary technologies to make clean, high quality diesel.
• Combined with ExxonMobil’s process technology, MIDW catalyst can provide refiners with powerful dewaxing in winter mode while dialing back performance in summer mode, reducing giveaway.
