Xylenes licensing

3D picture of molecule model

ExxonMobil Chemical has led the development and application of leading-edge technologies for xylenes and benzene production since the discovery of ZSM-5 in the late 1960s. Technologies for paraxylene and benzene production include: selective and non-selective toluene disproportionation, xylene isomerization, heavy aromatics transalkylation and aromatics treatment.

For customers interested in constructing a complete grassroots complex, ExxonMobil’s alliance with Axens S.A. offers all of the technologies required to meet your needs.

Technologies available for license directly from ExxonMobil Chemical are listed below and displayed in the red boxes of the simplified process flow diagram of an aromatics complex. Recent announcements about xylenes licensing can be found in the news release section.
