Process Advantages

Aromatization technology for octane improvement
  • Upgrade low octane gasoline to premium gasoline
  • Overall product utilization (gasoline +LPG) is greater than 93%
  • The upgraded RON 90 gasoline has low sulfur and olefins, and is
    excellent blending material combined with FCC gasoline
Aromatization technology for aromatics production
  • Convert C4 – C8 olefins into aromatics
  • No hydrogen needed
  • Complete integration with Steam Cracker possible with dry gas for
    hydrogen recovery; LPG and paraffins are recycled to steam cracking
  • Simple distillation is typically used to meet the aromatics specifications
    for paraxylene manufacture
  • Feedstocks can be from FCC, Steam Cracking, and Coking
