New reference for LD 153 Axens selective hydrogenation catalyst for C2 front-end application

MAY 20 - 2021
New reference in Asia for LD 153

Axens recently announced the launch of SeLene, a newly created family of catalysts dedicated to selective hydrogenation (See Press Release here).
Part of the SeLeneTM family, LD 153 is a selective acetylene hydrogenation catalyst specifically dedicated to ethylene producers with front-end process configurations.
LD 153 offers an innovative solution to increase ethylene yields while ensuring safer start-up and sustained normal operation. Its unparalleled operating window allows for a wide range of feed carbon monoxide (CO) content while maintaining stability and safe operation.
LD 153 was recently selected in Asia for an acetylene selective hydrogenation unit. This new reference confirms the LD 153 high performance and attractiveness to help increase ethylene production.
The SeLene™ catalyst family for selective hydrogenation of olefin streams is an industry benchmark, providing high performance and flexibility.
