The petrochemicals industry is highly complex and the possibilities are continuously evolving based on changing market dynamics, regulations and feedstock supply. Our solutions, which cover a broad range of petrochemical processes, enable customers to get the most value from their feedstock in a clean, reliable and energy efficient way. In addition, we have developed a portfolio of solutions that enable the conversion of by-products, such as pet coke, into more valuable products or intermediates, converting cost to contribution.

- ProcessThe single most important factor for hydroprocessing unit profitability is the length of time your catalyst remains active. No matter how high a catalyst’s start-of-run activity is, if it deactivates more rapidly than expected, your unit performance will suffer and profits will drop. A major cause of premature catalyst deactivation is impurities in feedstocks. Nickel, vanadium, iron, silicon, arsenic, phosphorus, and sodium are often present in feedstocks at ppb or even ppm levels, and the effect on downstream catalysts can be devastating. Our expertise in contamination control, our market-...
- ProcessRefineries around the world are striving to meet growing demands for cleaner fuels, while ensuring cost-efficient operations. Getting the greatest value out of crude oil and effectively processing all the fractions – from very light gas and naphtha to residue – can be challenging. Topsoe offers hydrotreating catalysts and technologies for all crude oil fractions, enabling refineries to meet product specifications at a low cost and with higher profits. These solutions are built on over 40 years of experience and dedication to meeting customer needs through innovation.
- ProcessA changing market drives petrochemical complexes to implement new processes, develop new catalysts and integrate refinery and petrochemicals operations, in order to get even more value out of a wide range of feedstocks. Topsoe offers hydrotreating and hydrogenation catalysts, guard materials, and technologies for all product streams – enabling petrochemical sites to meet product specifications at lower cost and with higher profits. All our solutions are built on substantial commercial experience, unmatched R&D effort, and a deep dedication to innovating solutions to fulfill customer needs.
- ProcessPressure drop caused by particles in the feed or crust build-up in catalyst beds can put any refinery at risk of an unplanned shutdown. This is never good news because maximum on-stream time and uninterrupted cycle lengths are critical for meeting refinery production targets and revenue goals. Topsoe catalyst bed grading know-how and technology help you deal with this effectively and reliably. Often-overlooked advantages of catalyst grading The importance of catalyst grading is often underestimated when evaluating the overall efficiency of a hydroprocessing unit. If you only focus on the main...
- ProcessReduction efficiencies up to 99% with maximum reliability, even when operating under severe conditions.
- ProcessOff-gases formed at refineries often contain components such as diolefins, olefins, CO2, CO, hydrocarbons, H2S, and various organic sulfur species – all of which are harmful to the environment and subject to increasingly stricter regulations. At Topsoe, we provide a wide range of proven technologies that minimize emissions from off-gases and even convert the undesired components to high-value products. The result? More cost-effective compliance with environmental legislation.
- ProcessA combination of particulate filtration and other emission management systems that reduces complexity and total cost of ownership
- ProcessHandling sulfurous gasses optimally - both economically and environmentally
- ProcessThe removal of VOCs from off-gasses in environmental-friendly fashion with reduction efficiencies above 99%
