DuPont, a leading innovation and market-driven science company, is presenting its latest developments in Sulphuric Acid Alkylation - STRATCO Alkylation Technology at the 2nd Middle East Technology Forum 2012 (ME-TECH) hosted in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. DuPont will highlight its sustainable solutions of reduced hydrocarbon and sulphuric acid inventories, increased alkylate throughput, improved alkylate quality and reactor design upgrades while boosting profitability.
“Fuel remains the backbone of industries around the world and yet its negative effects cannot be ignored. The Middle East is an important market for DuPont with a high demand for our innovative solutions. While addressing the local needs, we continue to push for processes that are less harmful to the environment and to human health without compromising the performance of refiners. We are very excited over the improvements we have made to our STRATCO technology and are eager to share the results of our work. We also urge industries to adopt more responsible technologies and practices that are good for the business, the environment and the society at large,” said Tony Parker, Business Development Director, Clean Technologies.
Alkylation is a refining process used to increase the quality of a petroleum refiner’s gasoline pool. It is the preferred method for producing alkylate, which is a key component in high-octane, clean fuels. DuPont’s STRATCO technology – a part of DuPont’s Clean Technologies portfolio – has been selected by 90 percent of refiners worldwide over the last 10 years.
DuPont is committed to providing technology-based solutions that enhance the long-term sustainability of today’s modern business enterprise. DuPont offers an extensive line of solutions for reducing particulate, sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide or sulphur emissions and for formulating cleaner fuels. DuPont’s Clean Technologies also include BELCO air quality control systems for the oil refining, sulphur recovery and sulphuric acid industries; IsoTherming hydroprocessing technology for reducing sulphur in motor fuels; and a comprehensive suite of aftermarket service and solutions offerings for sulphur recovery units, sulphuric acid plants and alkylation units.
