Abstract

Using the zeolite ZSM-5, new technology has been developed for catalytically oligomerizing light olefins (C3 to C4) to gasoline (C5 to C10) and diesel (C10 to C20) range product. This reaction produces product constrained by both the shape selectivity of the zeolite catalyst and the thermodynamics governing the oligomerization reaction.
