Chemical Processing & Catalysis

Enabling high-quality production processes with the latest ion exchange and membrane technologies.

 
 
 

Enabling efficient, sustainable catalysis

Chemical processing requires advanced and precise operating techniques and procedures. DuPont Water Solutions products address separations, catalysis and purification needs across the entire operations workflow. Water is a critical component in chemical processing, representing a significant operational expense. Water treatment for the refining industry needs to be safe, reliable, and economical.

For decades, we have been the premier supplier of polymeric ion exchange (IX) resins that are used to produce, purify, and recover some of the most commercially important elements in the world. We specialize in catalysis and separation technologies, as well as industrial water treatment, and feature some of the most recognized brand names in the industry.

Selective Contaminant Removal

Improve selectivity and activity

Our Amber series of ion exchange (IX) resins include polymeric catalysts that facilitate various catalytic reactions. The polymer morphology and porosity of these catalysts can be manipulated to control transport properties to optimize conversion and selectivity.

From synthesizing alkylphenols to silane disproportionation, our easy-to-use polymeric catalysts offer low corrosivity to equipment and have been used for over 50 years in some of the largest volume and most important products in the chemical and petrochemical industries.

Our solutions address:

  • Alkylation.
  • Base catalysis.
  • Condensation.
  • Dimerization.
  • Esterification.
  • Etherification.
  • Hydrogenation (MIBK).
  • Olefin hydration.
  • Silane disproportionation.

Eliminate impurities and increase value

Our understanding of feed stock and process water purification has helped companies thrive in this highly competitive field. We offer a full range of products and technologies, including catalysts, adsorbents, ion exchange (IX) resins, and filtration systems, to help your operation run at peak levels. 

Our solutions address:

  • Adiponitrile purification.
  • Biodiesel.
  • Boron removal.
  • Caustic purification.
  • Chlor-alkali.
  • Colloidal silica.
  • Deacidification.
  • Ethylene oxide (EO)/ethylene glycol (EG).
  • Formaldehyde purification.
  • Hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).
  • Metal impurities and precious metal recovery.
  • Salt recovery.

 

Remove harmful contaminants 

Contaminants are elements, complexes, and compounds that are both human-made and naturally occurring in water (at very low levels) that must be selectively removed so they don’t interfere with chemical processing. We can help remove a wide range of problematic contaminants from water.

Our solutions address:

  • Boron removal.
  • Organic compound removal.
  • Chromate removal.
  • Mercury removal.
  • Plating metals removal.
  • Cyanide removal.
  • Catalysis+
