PTT GC selects Avantium to perform independent catalyst testing evaluation

PTT Global Chemical has selected Avantium Catalysis to perform independent catalyst evaluation of naphtha reforming catalysts and support the catalyst selection for their CCR unit.

Avantium’s Flowrence® 16-parallel reactors system with individual temperature-control and unmatched discrimination capabilities allowed PTT GC to compare several catalysts options with their incumbent with as little as 20 L sample of their hydrotreated naphtha. Avantium was able to discriminate the various catalyst options by providing extremely precise and repeatable C5+ yields, total aromatics and hydrogen-produced data, as well as stability of the catalysts at constant RON output and complete PIONA breakdown with time on stream.

We are pleased to be a trusted partner of PTT GC for independent catalyst evaluation. Avantium is committed to providing our customers meaningful results to enable fact-based decisions and ultimately increase their competitiveness and profitability.
