Haldor Topsoe to build catalyst plant in the U.S. to meet increasing demand for refining catalysts
The plant is expected to be fully operational in the first half of 2023.
Topsoe will build a 15,000 ton per year hydroprocessing catalyst plant at the company’s existing Bayport production site in Pasadena, Harris County, Texas. The plant will increase production capacity of Topsoe’s TK catalyst family to meet increasing demand, both in traditional refining and for use with Topsoe’s HydroFlex technology for production of renewable diesel and jet fuel.
“We are happy to announce this significant investment which will reduce lead time and secure stable deliveries of Topsoe’s top-tier hydroprocessing catalysts to our customers in the U.S. and globally. We see increasing demand for our refining catalysts driven by an increasing global demand for clean fuels as well as the surge in renewable diesel production using our world-leading HydroFlex technology and our proprietary renewable fuel catalysts,” says Amy Hebert, Chief Commercial Officer, Topsoe.
