This article announces that INEOS Technologies has developed an improved maleic anhydride (MA) catalyst for both fluid-bed and fixed-bed systems. The firm claims a substantial improvement in the butane to MA yield has been commercially demonstrated. With fixed and fluid-bed commercial operating experience, INEOS has the ability to apply the improved catalyst to both applications. It also has its own dedicated catalyst manufacturing facility in Texas, U.S.
