Koch-Glitsch and INVISTA Performance Technologies offer technology to create high-octane blend stock from light paraffinic naphtha feeds

March 13/2018

MOSCOW (MRC) Koch-Glitsch and INVISTA Performance Technologies (IPT), affiliates of Koch Industries, announced an expansion of their partnership to offer the IsoA technology which allows refineries to transform low value, light paraffinic feeds into high-octane gasoline blend stock, as per Hydrocarbonprocessing.

The IsoA process technology Isomerizes and Aromatizes C5 to C7+ paraffins simultaneously boosting the octane, reducing the RVP and significantly increasing the value of these light feeds.

"Todays market is long in these low-octane, light paraffinic streams and short in high-octane blend stock, said Christoph Ender, Koch-Glitsch vice-president of sales and marketing. This technology can shift that balance and generate greater value for refineries."

Commercially demonstrated in six refineries, the IsoA technology can deliver an 85 wt% C5+ liquid yield with a typical octane boost of 20-25 points. The process reduces sulfur content more than 90 percent, generating a product with less than 10 ppm sulfur from a feed with less than 150 ppm. While the technology aromatizes the paraffinic feed, the catalyst is optimized to minimize benzene formation typically achieving less than 1 percent in the blend stock product.
