About this Report

This report is intended to assist buyers of refining catalysts, which are fluid catalysts used in refining and petrochemical applications. Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) catalysts help crack the hydrocarbon chain in distilled crude oil, assisting the production of transportation fuels, such as diesel and gasoline. Furthermore, these catalysts help to reduce sulfur content and cut emission of sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides and carbon monoxide in final petroleum products. Refining catalysts are most commonly purchased by refineries, chemical laboratories and chemical distributors.
