Naphtha Reforming

Naphtha reforming is the catalytic conversion of low octane Naphthas, distilled from crude oil, to high octane liquid products (reformates) which are then blended into the gasoline pool to increase the Octane rating and hence value. This is done through a catalytic process usually based on Platinum. In addition reformate is the main source of Aromatic precursor bulk chemicals used for conversion to plastics.
