There are several laboratories where you can do independent third party catalyst activity testing, for instance: Avantium, HTE, C-solutions, Intertek, Vuanch. Third party testing allows you to test the catalysts side-by-side under the operating conditions that are relevant to the refinery. Doing the side-by-side test requires coordination with the vendors on start-up and the test protocol to be applied, as all catalysts will be exposed to the same start-up and test conditions. In addition, the necessary non-disclosure agreements need to be in place between vendor, the refinery and test lab. The test laboratories have experience in setting up acceptable start-up procedures and test protocols. Catalyst Intelligence can manage this process for the refinery.
