THE WOODLANDS, Texas, July 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- CB&I (NYSE:CBI) today announced it has been awarded the license and engineering design of a grassroots alkylation unit by PT Pertamina (Persero). The unit will use CB&I's CDAlky® advanced sulfuric acid alkylation technology and Haldor Topsoe's WSA (Wet gas Sulfuric Acid) technology as part of the upgrade of Pertamina's Refinery Unit V in Balikpapan, East Kalimantan, Indonesia.
CDAlky is an environmentally-friendly alternative process to obtain high-octane, premium gasoline. Because the improved process eliminates the need for human contact with sulfuric acid, it reduces overall maintenance, chemical cost and environmental impact for refineries.
"CB&I is pleased to have been selected as the alkylation technology licensor for the project," said Daniel McCarthy, President of CB&I's Technology operating group. "We have previously licensed technologies to Pertamina, and we look forward to our continued partnership with them."
