Multi-stage reaction catalyst platform for FCC catalysts in refineries

Just introduced is Multi-Stage Reaction Catalyst (MSRC) platform for fluid catalytic cracking catalyst.

The manufacturing platform allows for FCC catalyst particles with staged reaction zones, having different catalytic properties for each stage. The developer declares: “The commercial concept of staged reactions is not new to the refining industry, having been used in hydrotreating reactors for some time, but its application to a fluidized bed catalytic system is a true demonstration . . . of innovation and technology.”

MSRC can be used in combination with its developer’s existing FCC catalyst technologies. These include Distributed Matrix Structure and Proximal Stable Matrix and Zeolite platforms.

However, MSRC manufacturing platform allows for combination of two or more FCC catalyst functionalities within a single catalyst particle. The location of the various stages can be specifically engineered to achieve maximum customer value. The staging approach can be applied to the processing of heavier feedstocks or the maximization of specific product yields in the FCC unit.
