Global sentiment has been moving toward a call to develop innovative technologies that address environmental preservation and limit the use of hazardous materials. For example, in 2016, the South Coast Air Quality Management District of California published a technology study that noted that advantages in emerging alkylation technologies lie in their ability to mitigate “…safety concerns related to volatile acid vapor clouds and acid transportation.”1 Also, China’s Environmental Protection Ministry has imposed heavy penalties on alkylation operators with inadequate safe practices relating to spent sulfuric acid treatment.2 This article discusses the commercial results of a new composite ion
