Catalytic Process R&D Scale-Up II
Publish Date: Jun, 2017
Catalytic Process R&D Scale-Up II You are no doubt doing your best to keep abreast of technological changes in process scale-up for the refining and petrochemical industries. Traditionally, there has been a scale-up step from the laboratory to a pilot stage followed by scale-up to a commercial "demonstration" plant, prior to committing to commercial production due to the: a) complexity of the processes; b) requirement to understand key parameters such as recycle and impurities; c)...

Oil-to-Chemicals: Technological Approaches and Advanced Process Configurations
Publish Date: May, 2017
JUST ANNOUNCED! NEW MULTI-CLIENT STUDY PROPOSAL FROM TCGR "Oil-to-Chemicals: Technological Approaches and Advanced Process Configurations" There is a need for an objective assessment and a detailed technological analysis of the activities directed towards oil-to-chemicals pursuits. It is clear that among the leading positions/approaches developed to date, notably by ExxonMobil and Saudi Aramco, the full breadth of the potential need may not be addressed because each user will require a unique solution. Therefore it would be...

Venture Start-Ups and Funding for CO2 Conversion
Publish Date: May, 2017
Venture Start-Ups and Funding for CO2 Conversion You are no doubt keeping an eye on the growing issue of greenhouse gases (GHG)/CO2 which has been gaining momentum recently, especially in light of commercially-viable CO2 utilization/conversion routes. Industry is well underway in its pursuits, and like-minded leaders internationally are achieving practical solutions that can be implemented in a cost effective manner—whether it's via CO2-derived fuels, chemicals or products like cement. TCGR's CO2 Capture & Conversion (CO2CC)...

In-House Training Courses: Focus on "The Catalyst Industry"
Publish Date: Apr, 2017
NEW OFFERING FROM TCGR! In-House Training Courses: Focus on "The Catalyst Industry" Taking Your Team "Beyond the Basics" with Practical, Real World Expertise and Knowledge In most cases, a fundamental understanding of the catalyst and catalytic process industries is insufficient for your purposes: it's "nice to know" information as opposed to "need to know" understanding. In order to go "beyond the basics," to capture the nuances, interrelationships and critical operational and competitive landscape, a deeper characterization...

Chemical/Petrochemical Production and Feedstock Conversion in China
Publish Date: Mar, 2017
"Chemical/Petrochemical Production and Feedstock Conversion in China: An Independent Assessment of Markets, Participants and Expectations, 2017-2025" The current understanding of the marketplace in China for chemical/petrochemical production, feedstock conversion and related services is fragmented at best, with local knowledge of participants in China difficult to obtain and challenging to verify. The recent commercial slowdown in China, vs. the situation reported in publically available sources (including statistics), has prompted clients of The Catalyst Group Resources (TCGR)...

New Materials: In-Reactor Optimization Using Active Purification Media
Publish Date: Oct, 2016
JUST ANNOUNCED! New Multi-Client Study Proposal from TCGR "New Materials: In-Reactor Optimization Using Active Purification Media" Traditionally, chemical and refining endusers are vastly familiar with feedstock and intermediate purification processes using adsorbents or chemicals to remove impurities that would deactivate catalysts within downstream reactors, such as selective hydrogenation of dienes, V and Ni passivation before FCC operations, or ZnO traps for chlorine or activated carbon for mercury removal. But an increasingly important trend is occurring in...

Ammonia Production: Catalyst and Process Technology Advances Yielding Cost Efficiencies and CO2 Reductions
Publish Date: Jul, 2016
JUST ANNOUNCED! New Multi-Client Study Proposal from TCGR "Ammonia Production: Catalyst and Process Technology Advances Yielding Cost Efficiencies and CO2 Reductions" Due to the drive towards increasing energy efficiency, optimizing resource utilization (including feedstocks) and meeting ever-growing product volume demands, there is a need to go beyond incremental process technology improvements in ammonia production to yield disruptive, and even breakthrough, advancements. Such gains are particularly important and urgent for the petrochemical/chemical industries, where the volumes of...
