Catalyst are chemicals added in small amounts to speed-up the conversion of raw materials into products. These chemicals do not undergo any changes during the process. They are differentiated based on their phase and the phase of the reactants. They are also categorized based on the processes they are used for. They find application across all industry segments, such as refinery, petrochemicals, chemicals, and foods. With the increased demand for green technologies, catalysts play a very significant role in petroleum refinery operations. Furthermore, key refinery processes such as cracking, hydro processing, and reforming, require the presence of catalysts.
