FCC catalyst BASF SE (Ludwigshafen, Germany; www.basf.com) recently launched Borotec, the newest evolution of its resid-oil fluid-catalytic-cracking (FCC) catalysts portfolio. Borotec is the latest innovation using BASF’s unique Boron-Based Technology (BBT) platform to provide mild- and moderate-resid-feed FCC units more flexibility in crude-oil selection, which results in increased yields of high-value products. A successful commercial trial has verified the ability of Borotec to improve performance, leading to higher yields of valuable products and lower bottom-of-the-barrel yields compared to competitive technologies, says BASF. The improved metals-tolerance feature provided by Borotec allows improved crude flexibility for refiners that increasingly engage in spot buying to maximize profits. The catalyst was developed to offer refiners optimized operation and maximized margins. This launch of Borotec follows last year’s introduction of Borocat to the market, the first FCC catalyst based on the BBT platform. Since then, Borocat has been successfully introduced in petroleum refineries all over the world.
