With over 60 years of continuously improved performance, CATOFIN technology is a highly reliable and productive method for light paraffin dehydrogenation. The process operates at thermodynamically advantaged reactor pressure and temperature to maximize conversion of propane to propylene, while reducing investment and operating costs. As an ongoing commitment to advance catalyst technology, Clariant consistently improves the CATOFIN process with innovations such as Heat Generating Material (HGM) and new catalyst generations.

CATOFIN 311 delivers even greater selectivity and a longer lifetime of service, resulting in increased overall profitability for PDH producers. Thanks to its extraordinarily high reliability and productivity, CATOFIN delivers excellent production output annually compared to alternative technologies.

For a typical 600 kta PDH unit, this innovation translates to a potential of up to $20 million of additional productivity over the lifetime of the CATOFIN 311 catalyst.
