(Photos: Clariant)Munich, November 8, 2016 – Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, today announced the launch of its new high-performance ethyl benzene dehydrogenation catalyst StyroMax® UL3. Thanks to its proprietary design, the catalyst achieves outstanding activity and selectivity at conditions of ultra-low steam-to-oil ratio (also known as steam-to-hydrocarbon ratio, SHR). Thereby, it produces styrene monomer far more efficiently than many other state-of-the-art catalysts. StyroMax UL3 was officially launched at the Clariant Styrene Seminar 2016, which was held from October 12 to 14 in Xi’an, China.
