Gasoline Alkylate Production

CDAlky® Catalytic Alkylation

The CDAlky® catalytic alkylation technology is an advanced low-temperature sulfuric acid alkylation process for the production of motor fuel alkylate. It reacts light olefin streams from refinery sources such as fluid catalytic cracking units or from steam cracking units with iso-paraffins to produce motor fuel alkylate. Central to the CDAlky process is a novel contactor/reactor design that significantly improves mass transfer relative to conventional contactors and operates at significantly lower temperatures than conventional alkylation processes. The CDAlky process is available for license to the petroleum refining and petrochemical industries.
