C5 selective hydrogenation catalysts

Steam cracking can produce pentenes at over 130 kg per MT of ethylene produced from liquids cracking, depending upon cracking severity and feedstock. After the first stage of pyrolysis gasoline processing, the pentenes rich distillate may contain up to 1% dienes which must be reduced to 100 ppm or less via selective hydrogenation for most downstream processes.

We offer a range of high quality palladium and nickel based catalysts to achieve this conversion. We offer versatile palladium catalysts as well as those tailored for high LHSV situations. Our product range also includes robust catalysts designed to deal with high sulphur and contaminated feeds. Please contact us for more information on our product range.
