Axens has announced the 10th anniversary of its AxSorb® and AxTrap™ adsorbents.
Over the years the adsorbent series has grown significantly from Axens traditional markets (gas, refining and petrochemicals) to new areas like CO2 capture and storage, hydrogen, odour control and biogas/landfill gas.
Axens production facilities located in Salindres (France), Brockville (Canada) and Saint-Louis (USA), have produced more than 150 000 t of AxSorb and AxTrap products over the past 10 years.
Both products allow operators to reach very stringent specifications while keeping a focus on safety, depollution and catalysts protection.
AxSorb adsorbents are regenerable and remove polar impurities like water, oxygenates, sulfurs, or nitrogen.
AxTrap adsorbents are non-regenerable and irreversibly trap poisons by chemisorption to ensure the tightest outlet impurities specification on mercury, sulfurs, fluorine, arsine or chlorides.
Axens believes that the future is promising for the adsorbents. Whether for classic applications where feedstock quality varies more and more or for new applications (process off-gases, CO2 capture and storage, hydrogen, biofuels, medical gases, biogas/landfill gas), adsorption has a huge role to play to provide efficient purification solutions.
