LyondellBasell Industries launched a com_prehensive 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 companyís licensed chemical technologies and associated technical services includes:
ē Olefins ConversionóThe 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.
ē Olefins RecoveryóComprehensive set of process technologies for the separation and purification of C4 and C5 olefins, including extraction of butadiene and high-purity isoprene.
ē Aromatics ExtractionóProcesses for the extraction and conversion of high-purity benzene, toluene and xylenes from liquid cracker pygas streams and coke oven light oils.
ē Oxiranes and DerivativesóLeading processes for the production of propylene oxide and its derivatives including butanediol, THF, NMP and GBL.
ē AcetylsóAcetic acid and vinyl acetate monomer (VAM) process technologies using highly-selective, low-pressure catalytic processes.
