ExxonMobil Chemical has applied proprietary catalyst hydrogenation technology to introduce its Ultra-Low Aromatic (ULA) product family. The technology enables the production of ULA fluids that comply with the most stringent environmental and regulatory requirements. This capability ensures that ExxonMobil customers will be able to access an ultra-low aromatic solution for their markets as the need arises. “ExxonMobil Chemical is dedicated to the development of products that meet the highest performance standards and comply with applicable regulations,” said Xavier Milcent, Global Hydrocarbon Fluids Marketing Manager, ExxonMobil Chemical. “This novel family of ULA fluids exemplifies this by providing customers an environmentally and cost effective solution.”
The first products of the ULA fluid family are Escaid™ 120 ULA for oil drilling applications and Exxsol™ D100 ULA for water treatment. They are pre-registered under REACH EU regulation. Exxsol D100 fluid has a long history in water treatment applications. With the introduction of Exxsol D100 ULA fluid, users will benefit from similar performance capabilities with the added advantages of ultra-low aromatic content.
