Axens and ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing sign alliance agreement

ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing LLC (ExxonMobil) and Axens have signed an alliance agreement for the sublicense of ExxonMobil’s Sulfuric Acid Alkylation technology. Under agreement, Axens and ExxonMobil will market and deliver all technologies associated within a refinery alkylation block, which includes Axens feed preparation, or Alkyfining, n-Butane isomerization and ExxonMobil’s Sulfuric Acid Alkylation. The technologies will be offered under a single license and engineering agreement to be provided by Axens.

Based upon the success of the current ParamaX® alliance to maximize paraxylene production, the new alliance leverages collective expertise to meet customer needs by providing a streamlined solution to produce high octane gasoline.

“Combining our owner-operator experience with Axens’ strong engineering expertise in providing advance technologies, we are excited to expand our partnership to offer this optimized alkylation solution to the industry” said Dan Moore, President of ExxonMobil catalysts <https://www.axens.net/glossary/definition-Catalysts-26.html>  and Licensing.

“We are excited by this agreement offering an integration of advanced technologies to better meet refiners’ needs for the production of alkylate, a key component of high octane gasoline” said Jean Sentenac, Chairman and CEO of Axens.
