Albemarle’s Catalysts solutions deliver value via two main business divisions: Heavy Oil Upgrading (FCC Catalysts and Additives) and Clean Fuel Technologies (HPC Catalysts). Albemarle supplies a robust portfolio of performance-based catalysts to add value in every step of refining process. A proprietary approach to catalysis, combined with world-class product offerings and a global network of industry-leading professionals, allows Albemarle to offer tailored solutions that power the potential of their customers’ refineries.
Albemarle’s FCC Catalysts enable high-yield cracking of heavier and cheaper feedstocks into high-margin petroleum derivatives such as transportation fuels and propylene. Our portfolio of FCC Additives can be utilized to reduce emissions of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide in FCC units, increase liquefied petroleum gas olefins yield, and boost octane in gasoline. Albemarle’s unique refinery catalysts and smart feed characterization gives refiners the flexibility to treat a range feedstocks while meeting yield and product requirements.
Our tailored HPC catalysts solutions for Hydrotreating, Hydrocracking, Alkylation, Isomerization, and Guard Bed applications are widely used throughout the refining industry. Their utilization enables the upgrading of oil fractions to clean fuels and other valuable oil products by removing sulfur, nitrogen, and impurities from feedstocks. In addition, they can improve product properties by the addition of hydrogen and in some cases even improve downstream catalyst and process performance. Albemarle’s HPC division also offers a robust portfolio of Chemical Catalysts including Oxychlorination Catalysts, Methylamine Catalysts, and specialty zeolites used for manufacturing PVC, methylamines, hydrogen, ammonia, and other industrial chemicals.
At Albemarle, we seek to make our clients more successful through the continuous development of innovative catalysts and application technologies. We know what works because we have decades of experience and data to support our recommendations. With better products, deeper application understanding, collaborative partnerships, and unparalleled technical support, we help our customers power the potential of their refineries.
We work hard to understand each client’s unique challenges and goals, which is why our senior catalyst specialists make refinery visits to ensure that expert assistance and advice are provided immediately. At Albemarle, we are inspired not by our past but by our future – and the future potential of our clients to make the world safe and Sustainable.
