Clariant introduces HYDEX® E: Next-generation diesel dewaxing catalyst for superior cold flow improvement
Munich, March 20, 2018 – Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, today announced the launch of its latest diesel dewaxing catalyst, HYDEX E. The new catalyst is an extension of Clariant’s well-established HYDEX series, designed for selective hydrocracking of long chain normal paraffins to improve the cold flow properties of middle distillates. HYDEX E maintains its predecessors’ exceptional robustness and flexible application, yet considerably increases diesel yield while reducing by-product formation. Consequently, producers not only benefit from higher cost-efficiency, but also improved sustainability.
