Maximizing existing xylene loop profitability

Within the xylene loop, the main challenge is to efficiently remove ethylbenzene while minimizing xylene loss. By implementing a xylene isomerization process, users achieve energy savings through both reduced traffic in the xylene loop and lower temperature requirement of the high activity isomerization catalyst. The technical paper also showcases an example of a commercial retrofit with associated benefits through Idemitsu Kosan in Japan.
