Axens, HTI to produce clean liquid fuels from residual heavy oil

RUEIL-MALMAISON, FRANCE: Axens has entered into a technology alliance with HTI, a subsidiary of Headwaters Incorporated. Axens is recognized as one of the world’s leading providers of technologies, catalysts and services for oil refineries. The purpose of the alliance is to promote the combined use of Axens’ and HTI’s technologies to produce clean liquid fuels from residual heavy oil. The alliance enables the companies to offer HTI’s proprietary HCAT Hydrocracking Technology in conjunction with Axens’ H-Oil ebullated bed hydrocracking process for residue upgrading.

“This strategic alliance with HTI will allow refineries around the world and Axens H-Oil operators to benefit from the integration of our two complementary technologies. Axens, a global leader in Residue Hydrocracking technologies, will now be able to offer the most advanced and commercially proven residual oil upgrading process, thanks in part to the addition of HTI’s HCAT dispersed-catalyst technology,” said Christian Dupraz, Senior Executive Vice President, Process Licensing, Axens.
