ExxonMobil’s innovation in catalyst process research is at the heart of two benzene alkylation technologies available for license through Badger Licensing LLC.
The relationship with Badger has enabled:
- The first commercial process for producing ethylbenzene based on the proprietary ZSM-5 zeolite catalyst (1970s)
- The first high-purity, liquid-phase processes for producing ethylbenzene and cumene based on proprietary catalysts, the ExxonMobil / Badger EBMaxSM
Below is a simplified process flow diagram for production of ethylbenzene and cumene using our proprietary EBMax technology and services:
