ZEAL commercial trials have confirmed its ability to deliver high propylene selectivity and yields. This innovative technology from BASF enhances performance through the higher content of zeolitic active sites in a new propylene FCC additive. Successful applications have demonstrated ZEAL’s ability to provide operating flexibility as refiners increasingly shift toward a crude-to-chemicals configuration in the future.Detlef Ruff, senior vice president, process catalysts, at BASF, said: “The introduction of ZEAL shows that we continuously innovate and introduce new products that address refineries’ needs. We are confident that the benefits of this new product will bring our customers improvements in propylene yields, potentially contributing to the refineries’ profitability.”
“The refining market and our customers increasingly focus on the need to support conversion of crude to chemicals,” says Jim Chirumbole, vice president, refining catalysts, at BASF. “ZEAL delivers high propylene yields to help our customers make more for the market.”For the latest refining and petrochemical industry related videos, subscribe to our YouTube page.
