Hydrotreating | Naphtha hydrotreating

High demands to get more value out of heavier feedstocks present new challenges for catalysts and technology. To name just one example, increasing use of coker material has led to higher silica and nitrogen levels in the naphtha feed pool, requiring catalysts with superior hydrodenitrogenation (HDN) activity and greater surface areas for maximum silicon uptake. Further downstream, naphtha pretreatment presents its own challenges, as the catalysts used in isomerization, catalytic reforming, and other units are extremely sensitive to impurities, such as sulfur, nitrogen, chloride, silicon and arsenic.

Our extensive range of naphtha hydrotreating catalysts and technologies are designed to handle all feedstocks and still ensure easy, reliable, stable, and profitable hydroprocessing. Superior process designs, high-performance catalysts, and proprietary equipment ensure significantly longer cycle length while increasing plant availability.

Furthermore, Topsoe offers related solutions for downstream petrochemicals processing, such as selective hydrogenation or benzene conversion.
