CB&I maintains proprietary catalyst formulations tied to our licensed processes. Catalysts improve process economics by steering reactions to higher conversions and yields. We either supply catalysts to our customers, or they are supplied directly to the end-user through our catalysts manufacturing partners.

The role of catalysts in conversion processes is illustrated below.

 

CB&I, together with its technology/catalyst partners, has developed catalysts for a multitude of refining, petrochemical and polymer processes.
