FCC Catalysts

Albemarle provides a full range of FCC catalysts for all applications. Albemarle FCC catalysts feature premium components, including one or more of the full range of Albemarle-developed zeolites (ADZ) and matrices (ADM). Catalyst performance is enhanced by applying appropriate metal trapping technology and by using unique manufacturing technologies that ensure that a catalyst provides high accessibility for the feed molecules to the zeolite and the matrix for maximum bottoms cracking.

Albemarle has developed and produces some of the highest-accessibility (i.e., best mass transfer/diffusion properties) catalysts on the market. Our technical service specialists will help you in the selection process and then provide guidance to help you achieve your profit goals.

Albemarle Accessibility Index
Albemarle Accessibility Index (AAI)AAI measures the diffusional properties of a catalyst. A higher AAI catalyst is better equipped to crack bottoms and reduce deleterious secondary reactions.
