Process

The Aromax® Process selectively converts light paraffins and naphthenes to hydrogen and aromatic products utilizing conventional fixed-bed reforming equipment. The following are fast facts about the Aromax® Process:
  • First reforming process based on a zeolitic catalyst
  • Best suited for converting C6-C8 hydrocarbons
  • Exceptional selectivity for converting C6 and C7 paraffins & naphthenes to benzene, toluene and hydrogen
  • Process includes a high efficiency sulfur control system to eliminate catalyst poisoning by sulfur
  • Toluene extraction may or may not be required
  • Proprietary catalyst technology
