Ethers

CDEthers®

The CDEthers® process produces a combination of MTBE, TAME and C6/C7 ethers by the catalytic etherification of isobutylene, isoamylene, reactive C6 olefins and reactive C7 olefins with methanol. Overall unit conversion varies depending on the reactive iso-olefins present in the light cut naphtha stream. This technology can also be integrated with Lummus Technology’s gasoline desulfurization technology.
