Effective Gasoline Production Strategies by Catalytic Cracking of Rapeseed Vegetable Oil in Refinery Conditions



original image

The incorporation of nickel onto a commercial FCC catalyst and co-feeding H2 into the reaction system improves the catalytic performance of rapeseed oil cracking, with respect to gasoline and light olefins (propene and butenes) production. On the other hand, the incorporation of platinum, with or without co-feeding of H2, is detrimental to both the conversion and the selectivity. Thus, a judicious choice of metal is vital for performance during vegetable oil cracking.
