Clariant launches new CATOFIN 312 propane dehydrogenation catalyst

Clariant, a sustainability-focused specialty chemical company, announced the launch of CATOFIN 312, its latest propane dehydrogenation catalyst. The new catalyst delivers greater selectivity and up to 20% longer life. Thanks to its increased productivity, a typical 600 KTA PDH facility could realize up to $20 million in additional profits over the life of the catalyst, providing a compelling value proposition for customers seeking to maximize returns.

Together with Clariant’s digital service portal CLARITYTM, customers can further improve catalyst-related plant performance with 24/7 access to their real-time catalyst performance data, advanced visualization, analysis, and monitoring tools. The service is offered across all Clariant catalyst applications, and has helped optimize plant performance parameters regarding efficiency, sustainability, and safety.

Jens Cuntze, Business President Catalysts at Clariant, commented, “With the introduction of CATOFIN 312, we have accomplished yet another key milestone in our state-of-the-art catalyst technology. Our firm commitment to innovation allows us to further increase performance of our catalysts for our customers in the propylene industry."

CATOFIN is a globally-leading catalyst technology for producing olefins such as propylene, isobutylene, and butylene/butadiene. Due to its excellent productivity and high reliability, CATOFIN technology has been chosen for numerous PDH plants worldwide. The CATOFIN process combines Clariant’s tailor-made catalysts and Heat Generating Material (HGM) with Lummus’s advanced process and is among the fastest growing technologies for producing propylene. Since 2017, CATOFIN has been selected for 40 new projects around the world.
