Ethylene Middle East Technology Conference

We are excited to be speaking at the upcoming Ethylene Middle East Technology Conference taking place 14-15 September 2022 at the Gulf Hotel and Convention Centre in the Kingdom of Bahrain. 

The event will gather professionals looking to develop their technical knowledge in the fast-evolving thylene Industry. Technical experts from all over the world will share practical experiences, innovative ideas and strategies for reducing costs, maximizing return and creating value on issues related to planning, design, operation and maintenance. You can find the full agenda on the organizer’s website.

We are proud to be sharing our expertise too. Don’t miss our insightful presentation on the first day of the conference.

  • OleMax® 260
    OleMax® 260 is a new generation selective acetylene hydrogenation catalyst designed for ethylene production using front-end process configurations. While OleMax series catalysts have been proven in commercial operation for decades, the new catalyst offers ultra-high selectivity for acetylene hydrogenation yet virtually no reactivity with ethylene. This maximizes product yields while minimizing energy and raw material consumption.Moreover, the promoted-palladium catalyst all but eliminates the risk of runaways by pushing runaway temperature far beyond standard operating temperature. The exceptional selectivity and consequent stability of OleMax 260 ensures reliable, on-specification performance over an unprecedentedly wide operating range, even at the extremely low CO levels typical of new cracking furnace technologies.
