In a groundbreaking development in the petrochemical industry, UOP/Cepsa, a leading technology provider and a joint venture between Honeywell UOP and Cepsa, has introduced a revolutionary technology known as Detal Plus. This innovative modification enables the conversion of Heavy Alkylate Benzene (HAB) into the highly sought-after Linear Alkyl Benzene (LAB), providing significant value addition to the production process. The project's successful implementation took place at the Egyptian Linear Alkyl Benzene Company (ELAB) in October 2023, where the existing Detal Unit was transformed into the Detal-Plus unit, resulting in the production of an additional tons of LAB.
