By Gerald Ondrey |

GTC Technology US, LLC (Houston; www.gtctech.com) was selected by Holly Corp. (Dallas, Tex.; www.hollycorp.com) and two subsidiaries to provide process design engineering and its licensed GT-BenZap technology for benzene management and reduction. The licensed technology will support Holly’s efforts for compliance with EPA-mandated Mobile Source Air Toxics (MSAT2) benzene regulations. GTC’s benzene saturation process, GT-BenZap, will reduce benzene concentration in the reformate gasoline stream at Holly Refining and Marketing’s refineries in Tulsa, Oklahoma and Woods Cross, Utah. GT-BenZap is designed as a cost-efficient alternative for refiners with limited economy of scale for benzene recovery, or where the refinery is located far away from benzene consumers. MSAT2 requires refiners, like Holly Refining and Marketing, to limit the concentration of benzene in gasoline to no more than 0.62 vol.% by January 1, 2011. GT-BenZap will allow Holly Refining and Marketing to implement a simple and reliable technology utilizing an isolated hydrogenation reactor and a world-class catalyst in the process. “GT-BenZap provides a solution that can reduce benzene in the reformate stream by more than 99.9% and yield lower operating…
