  • Patent number: 10696922
    Abstract: A process and a plant are specified, with which free fatty acids can be obtained in a simple manner by hydrolysis of fatty acid alkyl esters, especially fatty acid methyl esters (FAME), or alternatively of fatty acid triglycerides present in oils and fats of vegetable and animal origin. According to the invention, a portion of the free fatty acids already produced is recycled back into the reaction mixture, which results in self-acceleration of the hydrolysis reaction.

  • Publication number: 20200063051
    Abstract: A process for producing synthesis gas by gasifying a carbon carrier in a slurry having a significant content of phosphorus. According to the invention, the phosphorus compounds dissolved in the liquid phase of the suspension are at least partly precipitated by treating the suspension by increasing the pH of the suspension and/or increasing the concentration of metal cations in the suspension, before the suspension is heated further and subsequently applied to the gasification reactor.

  • Patent number: 10202554
    Abstract: A process and a plant for producing olefins from oxygenates such as methanol and/or dimethyl ether are proposed, in which initially the oxygenates are converted to a primary product containing propylene, other olefins, paraffins and aromatics in an olefin synthesis reactor. The primary product is separated into hydrocarbon fractions of different C chain length, wherein short-chain olefins such as propylene are obtained and beside further fractions there is also obtained a C7? fraction which contains C5/C6 olefins, as well as a C7+ fraction which contains aromatics. From the latter, the aromatics are separated and alkylated with the C5/C6 olefins to obtain alkyl aromatics. The same are hydrogenated completely and recirculated to the olefin synthesis reactor, where they likewise are converted to short-chain olefins.

  • Patent number: 9353036
    Abstract: Subject-matter of the invention is a process for producing fatty alcohols by catalytic hydrogenation of fatty acid methyl ester (FAME), in which the FAME initially is hydrogenated to fatty alcohol (FA). The fractions of non-converted FAME remaining in the hydrogenation product are converted to wax ester and methanol in a succeeding transesterification step with FA. According to the invention, catalysts on the basis of magnesium oxide or hydrotalcite are used. After separating the methanol and the FA as target product, a stream enriched in wax ester is recirculated to the hydrogenation reactor.
