Rive Technology and Grace Davison are commercializing advanced fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) catalyst technology that dramatically increases the yield of transportation fuels per barrel of crude oil. Rive’s Molecular Highway™ technology makes traditional zeolite catalysts more capable of cracking large hydrocarbon molecules, and allows valuable primary cracked products, like gasoline and diesel molecules, to more readily escape the catalyst before they are overcracked to less valuable light gases and coke.

Rive Technology provided an overview of the technology at the 2011 annual meeting of the National Petrochemical & Refiners Association.  In this paper we explain Rive™ zeolite technology, and describe its incorporation into a Grace proprietary catalyst matrix formulation.
