Renewables

Want to lead your refinery into the future? Want to profit from the opportunities that arise by going carbon neutral?

Partner with Albemarle and we can help you understand the available processing options, translate latest renewable trends into business opportunities and guide you through the changing challenges of processing renewable feeds into your valuable hydrotreater.

Based on its extensive knowledge and experience in the field, Albemarle is launching a catalyst line dedicated to co-processing of renewables: ReNewFine™. Each ReNewFine™ grade tackles the specific challenges for the operating zone in a hydrotreater, and is applied following the ReNewSTAX™ loading concept.

ReNewSTAX™ is the evolution of the STAX® methodology applied to co-processing of renewables, providing optimized stacking of catalysts for maximum activity, selectivity and stability.

Contact us for our information bulletin and to learn how our ReNewSTAX™ technology optimizes your unit performance and helps you power the potential of your refinery.

RENEWFINE™ CATALYST TECHNOLOGIES

Albemarle has extensive experience with renewables hydrotreating in commercial practice. The applications span from 100% Vegetable Oil (VO) to co-processing. Albemarle catalyst systems for co-processing are well-proven drop-in solutions that do not require configuration and equipment changes. Based on the knowledge developed together with its customers and the continuous efforts of its R&D team, Albemarle is launching a catalyst line fully dedicated to co-processing of renewables: ReNewFine™. ReNewFine™ grades tackle the specific challenges in a hydrotreater that arise from renewables co-processing and are applied following the principles of the ReNewSTAX™ loading technology.

ReNewFine™ 100 series
consists of HydroDeMetallization (HDM) catalysts specifically suited for renewable co-processing applications with the purpose of trapping Phosphorous and alkaline metals like Mg, K, Na and Ca. ReNewFine™ 100 series helps prevent pressure drop problems and reduces deactivation of the main catalyst.

ReNewFine™ 200 series
consists of grades suited for renewables co-processing with HydroDeOxygenation (HDO) as their main function. The series has a very high HDO selectivity, which allows the removal of oxygen from fatty acids while providing a significant reduction in the formation of CO.
