Matrix Service Co. has announced that Chevron has awarded its subsidiary, Matrix Service Inc., construction of the first alkylation unit in the US designed to use ionic liquids, at Chevron’s Salt Lake City, Utah refinery.
The unit, which will replace an existing HF alkylation unit, will rely on the ISOALKYTM Technology developed by Chevron USA Inc. and licensed by Honeywell UOP, to produce high-octane, cleaner burning fuels.
With construction scheduled to begin in January 2019, the unit is expected to become fully operational in 2020.
