Calgary, AB, July 15, 2019 – Well Resources is pleased to join Hydrocarbon Processing, a leading publisher that provides high quality technical and operating information in global refining and the petrochemical industry, in presenting a live webcast, “Ionikylation: Commercially Proven, Non-Hazardous, Non-Corrosive, and Environmentally Friendly Alkylation Technology of the Future,” on Tuesday, July 30, at 10:00 a.m. CST.


Environmental sustainability and safety are important considerations when operating chemical processes. Traditional alkylation technologies utilize corrosive catalysts such as sulfuric acid or hydrofluoric acid, and these chemicals pose serious safety and environmental concerns when handled in large quantities. In addition, several recent high profile refinery explosions in the United States has renewed discussions over the use of dangerous chemicals near urban centers.

Ionikylation is a novel alkylation technology that uses a proprietary composite ionic liquid as the catalyst to produce alkylates that meet or exceed the quality of those produced from traditional means. The non-hazardous and non-corrosive nature of the catalyst allows process equipment to be manufactured using carbon steel and minimizes risks to refinery personnel.

This live webcast offers educational and expert insight on the development and widespread deployment of Ionikylation in Asia-Pacific, as well as results and experience from commercial plant operations.

Presenters for this webcast are as follows:

  • Keng H. Chung, Ph.D., P.Eng., FEC, FGC (Hon.), Vice President of Technology, Well Resources

  • Lee Nichols, Editor/Associate Publisher, Hydrocarbon Processing; Moderator


Take advantage of this great opportunity to hear Dr. Chung’s unique perspective.
