April 9, 2015 – Dorf Ketal Demonstrates Commitment to Responsible Care

Dorf Ketal Chemicals India Private Ltd.has signed the revised Responsible Care Global Charter to demonstrate the company’s commitment to actively strengthen the Responsible Care initiative worldwide. 

Earlier this year, the International Council of Chemical Associations’ (ICCA) Board of Directors approved a revised version of the Global Charter and reached out to multinational companies to sign the revised version of the document to highlight their commitment to Responsible Care worldwide.

The Global Charter includes a commitment to continuously improve health, safety, security and environmental performance in facilities, technology and processes and continuous improvement of product safety and stewardship throughout the supply chain. In addition, the Global Charter aligns with Dorf Ketal’s commitment to innovative solutions to support sustainability. 



April 26, 2015 – Austin TX;
 Look for Dorf Ketal representatives at this year's AIChE Spring Meeting/ Ethylene Producers Conference, April 26 - 30 in Austin.

The AIChE Spring Meeting is the year’s key technical conference for practicing chemical engineers. A wide range of subjects relevant to the current needs of industry is covered. Plus, GCPS (Global Congress on Process Safety) covers the critical needs of process safety practitioners more broadly and deeply than any other conference.

Several Dorf Ketal representatives will be attending the various sessions. Dorf Ketal has created a broad portfolio of solutions that deliver high-performance, efficient, and reliable results for petrochemical applications for ethylene, styrene and butadiene production. Featured prominently will be Dorf Ketal's ACtify™ styrene inhibitor technology program. ACtify™ increases reaction rates while adding a unique, retarder-like decay characteristic.  In commercial applications, our activated inhibitors have demonstrated reductions in polymer formation ranging from 40-65% in styrene distillation trains previously being treated by ‘industry leading’ inhibitors.

April 28, 2015 - Houston, TX:
Coking.com will be hosting its annual RefComm Conference May 4 - 8 in Galveston. Dorf Ketal will be bringing some timely relevance in line with this year's RefComm theme with it's innovative new chemistry, TANSCIENT™, which has been engineered to maximize return for reliable refining of high TAN opportunity crudes. 

This year RefComm adds the unconventional hydrocarbon processing theme with shale processing and operations. North American unconventional oil and gas production has created massive volumes of feedstocks with chemistries not particularly known to refiners. The growth in production from light and tight oil plays has been so fast that infrastructure is still playing catch up. Join us in the Shale Hall or the Coking.com Hall and CatCracking.com Hall for unit specific discussions, as well as the breakout discussions and workgroups that make RefComm unique. The exhibition opens with a welcoming reception Tuesday evening. Exhibitors will be closely integrated with the Conference program with demonstrations and workshops during networking breaks.

The recent drop in crude prices has begun affecting refined product demand and margins. At RefComm, you’ll see how refiners are leveraging current assets to extend run lengths, reduce costs, and operate safely and profitably.  

In addition to presenting at the conference, Dorf Ketal will also be exhibiting at Booth #102 at Moody Gardens Hotel and Convention Center

TANSCIENT™'s superior phosphorous efficiency means refiners may gain greater control of corrosion protection while significantly reducing risk in addressing variations in naphthenic acid composition.  TANSCIENT™ offers more effective passivation and ongoing protection with up to 80% less phosphorus than competitor HTCI products.  This is breakthrough chemistry and a true game changer for the industry.


Key benefits include:

  • Superior thermal stability and oil solubility
  • Maximum surface reactivity, more effective protection
  • Low acidity, does not require cooled slipstream for injection
  • Familiar, easy-to-implement phosphorus-based passivation
  • Reduces risk of phosphorus fouling and catalyst impairment
