Izomalk makes inroads across the country
The geographic territory served by the Russian isomerisation technology Izomalk-2 continues to grow

In June 2008, the 235,000 b/d Ufa refinery began using Izomalk-2 technology. As well, SI-2 catalyst production has started for Novoil, another refinery in the Ufa group. This catalytic agent is to be delivered in mid-December 2008, while the isomerisation unit is to be installed in the reactor and launched in 2009. Earlier, Novoil used technological catalytic agents from Axens.
