for cleaner fuel
Advanced and Proven Technologies for
With more crudes on the market than ever before, refiners are under pressure to get the most out of their heavy, cost-advantaged raw materials. With so many new refining technologies available on the marketplace today, the focus of refiners should be on efficiently and economically re-configuring processing units to meet current fuel demands and increasingly stringent fuel quality and environmental regulation.
IsoTherming® Hydroprocessing Technology and IsoTherming® Mild Hydrocracking Technology are commercially proven breakthrough processes which provides petroleum refiners a more economical and flexible means to produce today’s cleaner, ultra-low sulfur transportation fuels and meet regulatory requirements cost-effectively.
They offer refineries twin economic and emissions benefits thanks to equipment reduction, capital and operating expenditure benefits, as well as catalyst performance enhancement through improvements on the conventional trickle bed design and the use of an innovative world-class catalyst.

STRATCO® Alkylation Technology enables refineries safety to produce cleaner-burning gasoline with high octane, low RVP, low sulfur, no aromatics and zero olefins. The technology uses a sulfuric acid catalysed process to convert low-value, straight-chain olefins into high-value, branched alkylate, a key ingredient for clean fuel.
The latest innovation, DuPont Clean Technologies ConvExSM HF alkylation conversion technology, provides refineries with the first cost-effective solution to converting volatile and toxic hydrofluoric acid (HF) alkylation units into safer sulfuric acid alkylation technology. This new technology also allows refineries significantly to increase production capacity for high value alkylate at 40 to 60% of the cost of a grassroots sulfuric acid alkylation unit of a similar size.
