Processing Shale Oil in an FCC Unit: Catalyst and Profit Optimisation

Processing Shale Oil in an FCC Unit: Catalyst and Profit Optimisation

Adjustments in base catalyst, use of ZSM-5 additives and metal traps enable efficient processing of paraffinic and heavy crude in the presence of metals contaminants. Crude oil has been exploited since Babylonian times, but the modern petroleum industry began in the 1850s when the first commercial oil wells were drilled and the crude was distilled to produce lamp and lubricating oils. The convenience and greater energy density of refined petroleum products led to oil replacing coal as the primary energy source within 100 years......
