BASF introduces ZEALâ„˘ FCC additive to deliver more propylene for refiners
BASF announces the commercial launch of ZEALâ„˘ which is a new Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) additive product designed to enhance the production of light olefins in FCC units that process resid or gasoil feedstocks. ZEAL is the latest product development that will enable refiners to quickly respond to the increasing shift to petrochemical feedstocks. ZEAL has been optimized to deliver superior propylene yields while maintaining the base catalyst performance.
ZEAL commercial trials have confirmed its ability to deliver high propylene selectivity and yields. This innovative technology from BASF enhances performance through the higher content of zeolitic active sites in a new propylene FCC additive. Successful applications have demonstrated ZEALâ€™s ability to provide operating flexibility as refiners increasingly shift toward a crude-to-chemicals configuration in the future.
Detlef Ruff, Senior Vice President Process Catalysts at BASF, says: â€śThe introduction of ZEAL shows that we continuously innovate and introduce new products that address refineriesâ€™ needs. We are confident that the benefits of this new product will bring our customers improvements in propylene yields, potentially contributing to the refineriesâ€™ profitability.â€ť
â€śThe refining market, and our customers, increasingly focus on the need to support conversion of crude to chemicals,â€ť says Jim Chirumbole, Vice President Refining Catalysts at BASF. â€śZEAL delivers high propylene yields to help our customers make more for the market.â€ť
