hte – the high throughput experimentation company supplied Chevron Energy Technology Company (ETC), a subsidiary of Chevron Corporation, with a workflow solution to increase the efficiency and speed of hydrocracking catalyst research.

After several years of successful research collaboration, Chevron ETC purchased a hydrocracking catalyst testing workflow from hte for the efficient combination of key steps in R&D. The fully automated lab 4.0 solution comprises the latest generation of hte’s X4500 16-fold hydrocracking catalyst testing system as well as accessories for reactor tube filling, elaborate analytical equipment and sample handling tools. The applied software solution myhte4™ merges data from all high throughput processes in the laboratory, from Design of Experiments (DoE), through reaction, sampling and analysis, right up to data processing and fast reporting.

hte’s technology was delivered and implemented at Chevron’s Richmond Technology Center in California in early 2016. “We have been operating this research solution for over nine months now and have seen excellent results. The data quality matches our pilot data,” says Bob Saxton, Manager of the Catalysis division at Chevron ETC. “To reduce our R&D costs and increase efficiency at the same time, we opted for downscaling. After many years of close collaboration, we selected hte to modernize our laboratory,” he adds.

“The relationship between Chevron and hte has grown stronger over the years. I am delighted that the cooperation with our key customer Chevron ETC has now resulted in the selection of our state-of-the-art hydrocracking workflow,” comments Wolfram Stichert, CEO at hte GmbH.
