Egyptian Linear Alkyl Benzene (ELAB)
ELAB Process plant is producing a linear alkyl Benzene by using Kerosine, jet fuel and Benzol in the presence of a ﬁxed bed of solids acidic atalkylation's conditions effective to produce a primary product consisting of an alkyl aromatic hydrocarbon having only one C10 to C15 alkyl substituent and a secondary product consisting of an alkyl aromatic hydrocarbon having more than one C10 to C15 alkyl substituent, which process may include a step for activating, reactivating, or regenerating the catalyst.
