Axens and ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing LLC sign alliance agreement to provide technologies for high-octane alkylate production
ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing LLC and Axens have signed an alliance agreement for the sublicense of ExxonMobil’s Sulfuric Acid Alkylation technology.
Under agreement, Axens and ExxonMobil will market and deliver all technologies associated within a refinery alkylation block, which includes Axens feed preparation, or Alkyfining, n-Butane Isomerization and ExxonMobil’s Sulfuric Acid Alkylation. The technologies will be offered under a single license and engineering agreement to be provided by Axens.
Based upon the success of the current ParamaX alliance to maximize paraxylene production, the new alliance leverages collective expertise to meet customer needs by providing a streamlined solution to produce high octane gasoline.
We are excited by this agreement offering an integration of advanced technologies to better meet refiners’ needs for the production of alkylate, a key component of high octane gasoline.—Jean Sentenac, Chairman and CEO of Axens
