  • Be smart about FCC olefin recovery

    Whether the driver is propylene as a chemicals feedstock or propylene and butylene as alky feed, FCC units worldwide are being pushed to maximize olefin production. Increased hydrotreating to meet Tier 3 gasoline requirements is reducing gasoline pool octane at a time of high premium-to-regular gasoline price differentials. Maximizing FCC olefi ns to produce high octane alkylate barrels is attractive – if they can be recovered in the FCC gas plant LPG stream. Higher reactor ...

  • Isomalk-3 - A robust n-C4 isomerization processs

    A Robust n-C4 Isomerization Process. Isomalk-3 is a low-temperature isomerization technology for processing n-butane into isobutane, its branched isomer. Isobutane is an important intermediate required for the production of isobutylene or alkylate. Isobutylene can be used to produce MTBE or other high value petrochemicals such as isoprene through a synthetic on-purpose route. The Isomalk-3 technology is based on the use of a mixed metal oxide SI-3TM catalyst with high selectivity ...

  • Isomalk-4 C7 paraffin isomerization technology

    Isomalk-4 is a low-temperature isomerization technology for processing C7 paraffins contained in wide-range naphtha streams. In a conventional refinery configuration, C7 paraffins are distributed to the C5-C6 isomerization unit and the reformer. These components have a high X-factor that reduces the overall yield of the liquid products, lowers RON of the gasoline, and forms unwanted amounts of benzene. GTC’s innovative process allows isomerization of this hydrocarbon stream ...

  • Look what the cat dragged in

    In most US refineries, the fluid catalytic cracker (also known as The Cat) is the main unit for converting heavy oils into gasoline and diesel. It produces gasoline (also known as cat gasoline), which is the largest single component of the US gasoline pool. Cat gasoline contains up to 2500 ppm sulphur and must be desulphurised before blending into finished gasoline to meet the new Tier 3 gasoline specification of 10 ppm. This desulphurisation job is done in Cat gasoline desulphurisers. ...
