Boosting Sulfuric Acid Alkylation Performance

Alkylation processes are an important tool for refineries to create octane that is required to meet gasoline specifications. In recent years with Tier III regulations implementation, and the resulting destruction of octane in hydrotreating processes, the need for more octane has never been stronger.
