Successful Operation of First Alyclean® Solid Acid Alkylation Unit
By Maurice Korpelshoek, Technology Marketing Director, CB&I
Alkylate product remains one of the most favored octane blending components in the refining industry. CB&I and Albemarle have developed and commercially proven a unique solid acid alkylation process, called AlkyClean®, which is the most environmentally advanced and safest processing option to produce alkylate, and an excellent alternative to retrofit existing HF alkylation units. After several years of process development and pilot plant testing, this novel alkylation process was licensed to Shandong Wonfull Petrochemical Group in China. This unique technology is the only demonstrated technology for solid acid alkylation. The results of more than a year of successful operation, together with application of this technology in existing refineries will be discussed.
Alkylate continues to be preferred gasoline blendstock for refiners.
First commercial demonstration of solid acid alkylation technology!
AlkyClean technology is innovative and proven solution for solid acid alkylate production.
