Aromatics Study

Get the deep insight needed to improve your aromatics complex and units performance.

Solomon's Worldwide Aromatics Plant Performance Analysis (Aromatics Study) provides a global perspective on the performance highs and lows of all your units, regardless of location, starting with your aggregate complex performance and moving down in granularity to the level of the individual unit. The study includes performance peer groups from aromatics complexes around the world and covers both individual process unit performance and aggregate aromatics complex performance.

Data collection focuses on manufacturing data, with a heavy emphasis on operations and maintenance. The study focuses on site aromatics production, process utilization, energy consumption, maintenance costs, operating and mechanical reliability, personnel, and process operating data by unit. It also delivers individual plant rankings for catalytic reforming, gasoline/naphtha desulfurization and treating, cumene, hydrodealkylation, etc.
