With over 60 years of improving performance, CATOFIN dehydrogenation is a highly reliable and productive method for light paraffin dehydrogenation. The process operates at optimum reactor pressure and temperature to maximise conversion of propane to propylene, while reducing investment and operating costs.

As an ongoing commitment to advance catalyst technology, Clariant and its licensing partner McDermott’s Lummus Technology consistently improve the CATOFIN process with innovations such as heat generating material (HGM) and new catalyst generations. Thanks to its extraordinarily high reliability and selectivity, CATOFIN delivers excellent production output annually compared to alternative technologies. Over the last two years, CATOFIN technology has been selected for 11 new PDH projects worldwide, resulting in a total of 7 million t of annual propylene production capacity.

Stefan Heuser, Senior Vice President and General Manager Business Unit Catalysts at Clariant, commented, “With the successful development of CATOFIN 311, we have reached yet another milestone in our advanced propane dehydrogenation technology. It is through this relentless commitment to innovation that we continue to add value to our customers’ businesses.”
