Haldor Topsoe to build catalyst plant in Pasadena, Texas to meet increasing demand for refining catalystt

 

Haldor Topsoe will build a 15,000 ton per year hydroprocessing catalyst plant at the company’s existing Bayport production site in Pasadena, 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, the company said in a statement.

‘This is a huge win for the region and the new TK hydroprocessing catalyst manufacturing plant should be viewed as critical infrastructure to support the world’s largest petrochemical complex,’ said Economic Alliance Houston Port Region President and CEO Chad Burke.

‘Its production will meet a growing global market demand coinciding with decades of unprecedented capital investment that has taken advantage of North America’s abundant low-cost and clean burning natural gas.  With a 7-to-1 indirect job creation of high-paying careers, it is the type of project that further strengthens our economy in the Houston Port Region,’ Burke added.”
