Transformative hydroprocessing suite

ExxonMobil Catalysts and Licensing LLC and Albemarle Corporation announced recently a transformative hydroprocessing suite of catalyst and service solutions for the refining industry called the Galexia™ platform. The platform enables an improved way of doing business, ensuring customer demands are better addressed at every stage throughout the value chain.

Uniquely leveraging the technical experience, refinery operating know-how and successful track record of both companies, users are given access to state-of-the-art hydroprocessing catalysts and vast experience in catalyst load optimization. The Galexia platform goes beyond traditional product offerings to help refiners optimize performance and efficiency by analyzing operations and identifying opportunities to extract additional value across the plant.

The collaboration between ExxonMobil and Albemarle builds on and strengthens their long-term relationship in specialty hydroprocessing. As a result, customers will benefit from access to combined pretreat and dewaxing solutions through a single partner that provides both refinery owner/operator and catalyst experience.
