Quality Improving of Bioparaffin Containing Hydrocarbon Mixtures

J. Hancsók, Z. Eller, C. Tóth & T. Kasza
The catalytic co-processing of different natural triglycerides and gas oils is a possibility to produce bio-component containing fuels. The aim of our experiments was the selection of a catalyst which is suitable for the selective isomerization of high normal paraffin containing hydrocarbon mixtures partly derived from natural triglycerides. We investigated the activity of several isomerization catalysts. In this paper the relevant results obtained on Pt/SAPO-11 which was one of the most suitable catalysts are presented....
