BP’s Kwinana refinery selects catalyst from Axens

Three years after the successful release of a full range of hydrotreating catalysts covering all domains from naphtha to VGO hydrotreating and hydrocracking pretreatment, Axens received its 100th Impulse catalyst award in ultra low sulfur diesel (ULSD) service.

BP’s Kwinana refinery, Australia, selected the HR 1246 CoMo catalyst following results of pilot plant tests conducted by BP’s Refining Technology & Engineering Groups, and subsequent tendering process. Thanks to its intrinsic high activity, HR 1246 will be associated with regenerated HR 626 and enable a less than 10 wppm sulfur diesel product while reducing the cost to fill.

Since the launch of Impulse catalyst technology, the market has recognised the value of this series of high activity products. Several bids have been won every month, including a substantial number of repeat orders.
