HydrodealkylationUpgrading fuel blending stock to high-value petrochemical intermediates
Backed by 45 years of successful operation in numerous commercial plants, Linde Engineering offers a thermal HydroDeAlkylation (HDA) process for the production of benzene from refinery and petrochemical streams.
This non-catalytic process is flexible towards a wide variety of feedstocks including toluene, xylenes, C9 aromatics, hydrogenated pyrolysis gasoline and reformate to produce high purity benzene with compelling yields.
In addition, it readily tolerates impurities of substances such as hydrogen sulfide (H2S), carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2) and ammonia (NH3).
Outstanding features include
