TULSA, Okla., Dec. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Matrix Service Company (Nasdaq: MTRX) announced today that Chevron has awarded its subsidiary, Matrix Service Inc., construction of the first-ever alkylation unit in the U.S. designed to use ionic liquids, at Chevron’s Salt Lake City refinery.

The unit, which will replace an existing HF alkylation unit, will rely on the ISOALKYTM Technology developed by Chevron USA Inc. and licensed by Honeywell UOP, to produce high-octane, cleaner burning fuels.

“We are very pleased to have been selected for this historic project and to support Chevron as they implement this environmentally beneficial technology at their Salt Lake refinery,” said Matrix Service Company President and Chief Executive Officer, John R.
