Recent developments 


April 2021- Chevron has inaugurated an alkylation unit at its Salt Lake City refinery, setting a landmark for the industrialization of ionic liquids. The unit utilizes an ionic liquid catalyst as an alternative to the conventional hydrofluoric or sulfuric acid.
Alkylation reacts isobutane with olefins such as propylene and butene to produce octane and other fuels. The Salt Lake City unit is the first commercial ionic liquid-based alkylation unit getting deployed across the United States with a capacity of over 5,000 barrels of alkylate per day. Chevron conducted a demonstration unit for over five years before revamping its HF-based unit.

December 2021- a new product, a cell culture medium without foetal bovine serum, by CellMEAT, a South Korean firm, will aid in lowering the manufacturing costs of cultured meat and evade ethical concerns within the cultured meat industry. The company lately disclosed a pre-series A funding round of over USD4.5 million.
The company was chosen as a contestant in the Tech Incubator program for startups in 2019.
