LyondellBasell Industries launched a comprehensive portfolio of value-added chemical technologies to produce a range of high growth chemical products by efficient conversion of streams primarily originating from liquid crackers. The extended portfolio of the company's licensed chemical technologies and associated technical services includes:
Olefins Conversion—The Superflex, Prodflex, Isomplus, isomerisation and hydration catalytic processes for the selective conversion of low-value, mixed-olefin streams from crackers to ethylene, propylene and butenes.
Olefins Recovery—Comprehensive set of process technologies for the separation and purification of C4 and C5 olefins, including extraction of butadiene and high-purity isoprene.
Aromatics Extraction—Processes for the extraction and conversion of high-purity benzene, toluene and xylenes from liquid cracker pygas streams and coke oven light oils.
Oxiranes and Derivatives—Leading processes for the production of propylene oxide and its derivatives including butanediol, THF, NMP and GBL.
Acetyls—Acetic acid and vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) process technologies using highly-selective, low-pressure catalytic processes.
