Petrochemicals are products mostly drived from petroleum. The most important petrochemical classes are olefins and aromatics, which are produced by fluid catalytic cracking of petroleum fractions.
If your are interested about catalysts for Petrochemical Industry please do not hesiate to contact us and our experts will provide you information about this catalysts in this segment.
Production of this petrochemical is essencial for whole Petrochemical Industry because Ethylbenzen is an intermediate in the production of styrene, the precursor of polytyrene. Ethylbenzen is produced by alkylating benzene with ethylene. This reaction is catalyzed by special kind of zeolites.
The majority of styrene produced in the world is made by dehydrogenation of ethylbenzen. For this process is used group of catalysts which together significantly increase your output and your styrene production will be efficient like never before. The key step is selective combustion of hydrogen which is catalyzed by a special kind of catalyst.
In the petrochemical industries and petroleum refining, the BTX means mixtures of benzene, toluene and xylene isomers. All of these are aromatics hydrocarbons which are normally produced by distillation and/or solvent extraction processes from reformate streams. The raw aromatic compounds contain small amount of olefins which must be removed. There exist an effective process which is able to remove these compounds by using catalysts.
