NaphthaClean®

Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) technology for reducing gasoline sulfur. BASF produces NaphthaClean technology designed for the reduction of sulfur without lowering gasoline production

Premium Technology
Based on the combination of BASF’s award-winning and commercially-proven Distributed Matrix Structures (DMS) technology and sulfur reduction technology, NaphthaClean gives the refiner both maximum gasoline production and maximum gasoline sulfur reduction.

This technology demonstrated 25-40% sulfur reduction in gasoline and provides refiners with the additional flexibility to reduce gasoline sulfur via cut-point control. This can be achieved while preserving or even increasing gasoline yield due to NaphthaClean’s improvement of gasoline selectivity. The additional benefits of low coke and gas selectivity as well as improved bottoms cracking associated with the DMS platform are still maintained.

Sulfur reduction is a requirement in low sulfur gasoline markets because 90% of gasoline sulfur is derived from FCC gasoline. The combination of feed hydrotreating, FCC and additives, and post-treating or cut-point adjustment is utilized by refiners to meet low sulfur specifications. NaphthaClean can be a cost-effective contributor to sulfur reduction in gasoline.
