Mass transfer and catalysis are the bases of all refinery processes. Therefore, these two areas are probably the most active in terms of the research and development of new products. These two areas are also very important to refiners that are interested in using lower-capital methods to increase existing plant capacity and efficiency. For refining catalysts, demand fell off in 1998 and early 1999 due to lower oil prices and poor gasoline sales. However, the long-term outlook is more positive due to: New regulations that call for a reduction in gasoline and diesel sulfur levels, which will increase the demand for hydrotreating capacity and perhaps create a market for new, more-
