Axens expands US catalyst manufacturing plant

December 12/2017

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Axens completed the expansion of its Calvert City, Kentucky manufacturing plant to produce its Impulse hydroprocessing catalysts Series in North America, as per Apic-online.

Impulse is a complete range of high performance Hydrotreating catalysts offering higher flexibility and maximum throughput allowing to process even more difficult feedstock with higher end boiling point and longer cycles.

The Calvert City site will produce the full range of Impulse catalysts covering all domains from naphtha to VGO Hydrotreating and hydrocracker pretreatment. This is one of several sites with the capability to meet the global demand for Impulse catalysts.

As MRC wrote before, in 2016, Hengli Petrochemical (Dalian) Co. Ltd. (HPDC) let a contract to Axens SA, Rueil-Malmaison, France, to provide a suite of processing units and technologies for a grassroots crude-to-paraxylene complex under construction at its integrated refining and petrochemical project in Hengli Petrochemical Industrial Park (HPIP) on Changxing Island in Dalian, Liaoning Province, China, said Ogj.Alongside a final-conversion refinery designed to process 400,000 b/sd of crude oil into mostly naphtha, the refining complex also will include an aromatics plant that will maximize output of high-purity paraxylene to serve as feedstock for HPDCs existing purified terephthalic acid (PTA) plants at HPIP.
