New Fourtitudeâ„˘ FCC catalyst maximises butylenes helping to improve performance for refiners
BASF launched today Fourtitudeâ„˘, a new Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) catalyst designed to maximize butylenes from resid feedstocks. Fourtitude, the latest product based on BASFâ€™s award-winning multiple framework topology (MFT) technology, is optimized to deliver superior selectivity to butylenes while maintaining catalyst activity.
MFT technology enhances performance through the use of more than one framework topology working together to tailor the catalyst selectivity profile. Fourtitude combines the benefits of MFT and metals passivation technologies to deliver superior butylenes selectivity and metals resistance for resid feedstock applications. The superior butylenes selectivity is achieved by employing a specialty zeolite framework that is more effective at cracking small olefins to butylene.
Fourtitude refinery trials have validated its ability to deliver improved performance for refiners through increased butylenes and propylene yields, increased gasoline octane, and improved coke selectivity.
â€śFourtitude is an important addition to BASFâ€™s industry-leading and advanced refinery catalysts portfolio,â€ť said Detlef Ruff, Senior Vice President, Process Catalysts at BASF. â€śWe are pleased to introduce an innovative product to help our customers processing resid feedstocks improve butylenes selectivity and overall performance of refineries.â€ť
