Honeywell UOP introduces new range of hydrotreating catalysts

DES PLAINES, US: Honeywell UOP LLC said that it is introducing an expanded portfolio of new hydrotreating catalysts used to remove impurities and contaminants from petroleum and other refining feedstocks to produce cleaner-burning gasoline and diesel that meets new global emissions regulations.

The addition of a range of hydrotreating catalysts expands Honeywell UOP's line of catalysts, which are used to produce transportation fuels and petrochemicals.

Hydrotreating is a critical step in the refining process where hydrogen and proprietary catalysts are used to pre-treat petroleum and other products to remove sulphur, nitrogen, metals and other contaminants before conversion into transportation fuels. Hydrotreating helps produce cleaner-burning gasoline and diesel that meets increasingly stringent global fuel regulations, including Euro-V, China-V, and in India, BS-VI – all of which specify sulphur content of less than 10 parts per million in transportation fuels.

Honeywell UOP's new offerings include more than two dozen hydrotreating catalysts for applications including:

  • Hydrocracking and Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) pre-treat
  • Diesel and kerosene hydrotreating
  • Coker naphtha hydrotreating

Honeywell UOP also offers catalysts for naphtha hydrotreating as well as FCC gasoline desulphurisation.

"By further broadening our own hydrotreating catalyst offerings, we can provide an expanded suite of catalysts for hydroprocessing, one of the most important technologies in refining," said Ken Stacherski, VP and general manager of Honeywell UOP's catalysts, adsorbents and specialities business.

"We're now applying our expertise in catalytic chemistry to meet our customers' pre-treat and conversion needs and deliver greater customer value, whether their units were designed by Honeywell UOP or somebody else," added Stacherski.
