A hallmark of Rive’s mesoporous Molecular Highway zeolite is that it provides improved coke selectivity over current FCC catalyst technologies employing conventional zeolites. Refiners with FCC units constrained by air blower rate to take advantage of improved coke selectivity in a variety of ways (singly or in combination) through the ability to:

– increase FCC unit feed rate
– raise conversion severity
– lower regenerator and riser temperatures
– process heavier feedstocks

Background on Rive’s Molecular Highway™ technology and discussion on its successful demonstration in alleviating process constraints may be viewed at:
