GTC Technology Inc. provides proprietary licensed technology to processing industries from naphtha processing to terephthalic acid purification. Headquartered in North America and operating globally, GTC is the leader in applying innovative solutions to solve chemical processing problems and maximize chemical processing opportunities.
The seeds of the company started in 1994, when several of the now principals of the company were gaining knowledge and experience in separations technologies. Expert themselves in extractive distillation (ED), the engineers and scientists began to apply ED to previously overlooked production areas.
The company’s success has been built around a single notion applied to the production of chemicals and the refining of petroleum worldwide. The notion is to examine a marketable production process, and enhance and improve it until that experience generates a step-change in production efficiencies and capacities. That notion applied to mature processes such as the production of dimethyl terephthalate (DMT), resulted in dramatic changes in the production process and a significant extension of the product life.
At the same time, aromatics recovery studies demonstrated again and again the tremendous profitability of replacing LLE with ED for this ever-tightening production area. GTC’s hands-on, market-driven approach brought about significant economic incentives in aromatics recovery and purification. GTC is marketing technologies for paraxylene production and fuel gas desulphurization,both of which combine detailed process knowledge with keen process application.
