Calgary, AB, May 12, 2017 Ionikylation is a commercially proven, non-hazardous, non-corrosive, and environmentally friendly composite ionic liquid (CIL) alkylation technology that produces high octane gasoline constituents from refinery streams.

Ionikylation offers the following advantages over conventional alkylation technologies: 

  • Inherently safe and environmentally friendly process

  • Non-corrosive system: low-cost carbon steel equipment

  • Non-hazardous emissions and waste, reduced waste water

  • High catalyst activity, stable reactor operating system

  • High quality alkylate product (96-98 RON, chloride < 5ppm)

  • Integrated catalyst regeneration

  • Competitive energy consumption


Backed by over 15 years of research and development, the Ionikylation technology is commercially implemented in Asia and has been continuously demonstrated since 2013.


Well Resources is pleased to announce that this technology is now ready for commercial licensing, effective immediately.
