Increased regulatory pressure to reduce benzene in the gasoline pool requires a comprehensive solution. Controlling reformer feed or severity as a means of limiting benzene production is a costly option and may be inadequate for some refiners. Benzene hydrogenation downstream of the reformer offers a reliable solution for positive benzene control without constraining the reformer.
As the world leader in the field of hydrogenation, in the refining and petrochemical industry, and with more than 500 commercial references, Axens offers the cost effective solution to saturate benzene without compromising reformer severity.
