Shell Catalysts & Technologies offers a wide variety of catalysts for the hydrotreatment of pyrolysis gasoline (pygas) for both the 1st and 2nd stage process steps. Shell Catalysts & Technologies benefits from operating experience from Shell affiliate’s pygas units), design experience (from Shell’s hydrotreating licensing), reactor internal expertise as well as world-class modeling to become a leading provider in pygas processing solutions. These solutions address common issues experienced when operating pygas treatment systems, such as pressure drop mitigation, activity optimization, and aromatic saturation minimization. These high-performance catalysts have also proven extremely effective in Coke Oven Light Oil (COLO) hydrotreating services.
1st Stage Pygas Catalysts:
Shell Catalysts & Technologies offers a full line of catalysts and grading products for 1st stage pygas reactors targeting the removal of diolefins, alkenyl aromatics (styrene) and some olefins for downstream processing. Shell Catalysts & Technologies’ portfolio includes both palladium and nickel catalysts, as well as specialized inert and active grading solutions.
2nd Stage Pygas Catalysts
Shell Catalysts & Technologies offers a full line of catalysts and grading for 2nd stage pygas reactors targeting sulfur and olefin removal. Shell Catalysts & Technologies’ portfolio includes both NiMo and CoMo catalysts as well as specialized inert and active grading.
With our unique pygas modeling abilities and full range of products, Shell Catalysts & Technologies can provide an optimum catalyst and process solutions for your pygas unit needs.
