Heavy Oil Upgrading

For over 50 years, Albemarle’s catalyst team has focused on developing, manufacturing and optimizing a robust portfolio of catalysts and additives used for the conversion of a wide range of feedstocks.  These products have brought improved performance to numerous refineries around the world.

That work continues today using smart feed characterization, plus our extensive laboratory, pilot-plant and commercial performance evaluations. We utilize proprietary, cutting-edge models to simulate specific feedstock characteristics and operating conditions so that we can select and optimize the proper catalysts to meet our customer’s unique needs.  These analyses and performance evaluations are conducted through close coordination between our customers and our highly trained technical specialists.
