BASF : completes E15x series with new hydrogenation catalysts increasing efficiency and performance

10/04/2022 | 03:52am EST
  • New sulfur-resistant E 15x S catalyst family optimizes processing of contaminated feedstocks
  • Novel low-density E 15x L catalyst family minimizes precious metal loading

BASF completes its well-established selective hydrogenation catalyst E 15x serieswith two innovative product lines. The new sulfur resistant E 15x Scatalyst family aims at facilitating the processing of contaminated feedstocks, enabling reliable process operation and thereby increasing the flexibility of producers to use low-quality feedstocks containing higher amounts of impurities. E 153 S ECU 1/8"is now installed in a world scale PyGas 1ststage unit, proving its outstanding activity and outperforming the competitor incumbent catalyst.

On the other side of the spectrum, BASF finalized the in-house development of a new low-density carrier, serving as a versatile platform for selective hydrogenation applications. The new E 15x L catalyst family is currently BASF's most cost-efficient solution for hydrogenation units. E 15x L minimizes the amount of precious metal needed for a hydrogenation catalyst, without compromising catalyst activity. Dedicated carrier design and precious metal coating techniques enable a significant hydrogenation activity boost by high precious metal dispersion. Detailed pilot studies proved reliable operation and significantly outperformed competitor low-density solutions in a direct comparison.

"With the new catalyst families E 15x S and E 15x L we provide two additional solutions for our customer`s specific process needs and optimize the use of precious metal" said Detlef Ruff, Senior Vice President Process Catalysts at BASF SE. "We are now able to offer customers a complete package of innovative solutions and are looking forward to discussing this in person during EPCA."
