Features

  • Highlights the relationships between catalyst material features and catalyst activity, product selectivity, product quality, and stability
  • Explores the role of synthesis methods and material features to promote product selectivity at high yield and product quality
  • Explains how the structural factors in catalysis can be fine tuned to make better catalysts
  • Focuses on recent patents in the field

Summary

To meet changing market demands that have stringent emission standards and to ensure proper performance in refinery units, evaluation of novel catalyst designs and results from material characterization and testing of catalysts are of crucial importance for refiners as well as for catalyst manufacturers. This book highlights recent developments in the application of refinery catalysts in selected units such as fluid catalytic cracking (FCC), hydrogen production for hydroprocessing units, hydrotreating, hydrocracking, and sustainable processing of biomass into biofuels.
