Axens has announced the launch of SeLene™, a newly created family brand dedicated to selective hydrogenation.

Selective hydrogenation is an essential purification step for the production of the most critical building blocks of the petrochemical industry. These blocks include ethylene, propylene, butadiene and aromatics. Selective hydrogenation is also applied in several refinery processing schemes, and plays an increasingly important role in the widely adopted, fully integrated, refinery and petrochemical operation.

Axens proposes a broad catalyst portfolio to deliver optimal performance, specifically tailored for the selective hydrogenation needs of its customers.

In a statement, the company said that its highly integrated offers the convenience of a one-stop shop for its customers including licensing, basic engineering, internals and dedicated equipment, adsorbents, gradings, unit auditing, consulting, revamping and digitalisation revolving around the broad catalyst portfolio.

The SeLene family combines over 20 industrially proven catalysts along with tailor-made services to provide dedicated solutions to meet customer needs. It also welcomes Axens’ latest catalysts with new performance features to help customers create more value along the whole olefins chain from the acetylene to the Pygas cut.

Marie-Clotilde Gouvenot, Global Market Manager at Axens, said: “The SeLene catalyst family is one of Axens’ first step[s] to go hand in hand with customer[s] in order to tackle the upcoming challenges related to the selective hydrogenation field. The SeLene catalyst family is focused on two main axes: innovative catalysts and dedicated services towards customer’s satisfaction.”
