Consider advanced multi-promoted catalysts to optimize reformers

Improved catalyst systems strike a new balance to increase yields with greater selectivity for end-products

  Catalytic reforming accounts for a large share (28%) of the world¡¯s gasoline production. It is the most important source of aromatics for the petrochemical industry. Reforming is also a major source of refinery-based hydrogen, for which demand is growing rapidly due to escalating hydrotreatment needs. Although the state of the art has advanced remarkably improvements in catalyst selectivity, activity and stability have significant impact on refinery economics. The incentive to improve reforming catalyst formulations is as high as ever. Catalyst development continues to be a major activity among catalyst suppliers. Ways to improve catalyst performance. As the difference
