A series of hydrocracking catalysts from Haldor Topsøe, a world leader in high-performance catalysts and proprietary technologies for the chemical and refining industries, were tested in Avantium’s refinery catalyst testing services.
The results obtained and data quality (precision, accuracy and reproducibility) have been independently validated by Haldor Topsøe. Especially, the reactor-to-reactor reproducibility and the flexibility of the Flowrence® technology were demonstrated for a broad range of conditions (temperature, WHSV).
“We are very pleased to have our high throughput technology validated by Haldor Topsøe for hydrocracking catalyst comparison. This validation test is part of the ongoing efforts to formally obtain the endorsement from all major catalyst vendors of our testing approach, strategies and experimental setup. We are committed to provide our customers meaningful results to enable fact-based decisions and ultimately increase their competitiveness & profitability.”
