Catalytic Process R&D Scale-Up II
Catalytic Process R&D Scale-Up II You are no doubt doing your best to keep abreast of technological changes in process scale-up for the refining and petrochemical industries. Traditionally, there has been a scale-up step from the laboratory to a pilot stage followed by scale-up to a commercial "demonstration" plant, prior to committing to commercial production due to the: a) complexity of the processes; b) requirement to understand key parameters such as recycle and impurities; c)...

Oil-to-Chemicals: Technological Approaches and Advanced Process Configurations
JUST ANNOUNCED! NEW MULTI-CLIENT STUDY PROPOSAL FROM TCGR "Oil-to-Chemicals: Technological Approaches and Advanced Process Configurations" There is a need for an objective assessment and a detailed technological analysis of the activities directed towards oil-to-chemicals pursuits. It is clear that among the leading positions/approaches developed to date, notably by ExxonMobil and Saudi Aramco, the full breadth of the potential need may not be addressed because each user will require a unique solution. Therefore it would be...

New Materials: In-Reactor Optimization Using Active Purification Media
JUST ANNOUNCED! New Multi-Client Study Proposal from TCGR "New Materials: In-Reactor Optimization Using Active Purification Media" Traditionally, chemical and refining endusers are vastly familiar with feedstock and intermediate purification processes using adsorbents or chemicals to remove impurities that would deactivate catalysts within downstream reactors, such as selective hydrogenation of dienes, V and Ni passivation before FCC operations, or ZnO traps for chlorine or activated carbon for mercury removal. But an increasingly important trend is occurring in...
