HF alkylation conversion is finally within reach—Part 2

In Part 1 of this two-part series, recent technology developments to convert hydrofluoric acid (HF) alkylation to sulfuric acid alkylation were discussed.

In Part 1 of this two-part series, recent technology developments to convert hydrofluoric acid (HF) alkylation to sulfuric acid alkylation were discussed. Not only can HF conversion be completed with a much lower capital investment than previously thought, but significant expansion is also possible with little additional cost due to some inherent differences between alkylation technologies that utilize HF and sulfuric acid as the catalyst. The two expansion case studies introduced in Part 1 will be explored in more detail in Part 2 of this series. Part 1 recap HF conversion is finally within reach, thanks to the development of proprietary, cost-effective, proven technologies. In conjunctio
