  • Patent number: 10766834
    Abstract: Disclosed are selectivated transalkylation catalyst compositions and methods of making the same. The selectivated transalkylation catalyst compositions have a zeolite framework structure of MWW, FAU, BEA*, or MOR, or mixtures thereof, and are selectivated with a selectivating solution. The selectivating solution includes a dissolved ion of at least one element in Group 1, Group 2, Group 15, Group 16, or Group 17 of the Periodic Table. Also disclosed are processes of producing ethylbenzene and cumene using the selectivated transalkylation catalyst compositions.

  • Publication number: 20190359899
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for hydroconversion of a heavy oil feed under slurry hydroprocessing conditions and/or solvent assisted hydroprocessing conditions. The systems and methods for slurry hydroconversion can include the use of a configuration that can allow for improved separation of catalyst particles from the slurry hydroprocessing effluent. In addition to allowing for improved catalyst recycle, an amount of fines in the slurry hydroconversion effluent can be reduced or minimized. This can facilitate further processing or handling of any “pitch” generated during the slurry hydroconversion. The systems and methods for solvent assisted hydroprocessing can include processing of a heavy oil feed in conjunction with a high solvency dispersive power crude.

  • Patent number: 9950971
    Abstract: A process and catalyst for use therein for the production of aromatics via the oxidative coupling of methane and methane co-aromatization with higher hydrocarbons in a single reaction stage. First, methane is partially converted to ethane and ethylene on an OCM catalyst component, and the OCM intermediate mixture containing methane, ethane and ethylene is subsequently converted into aromatics on an aromatization catalyst component. The reaction may be conducted at 550-850° C. and at about 50 psig. The claimed process and catalyst used therein achieves high methane conversion at lower temperatures (less than 800° C.), higher methane conversion into the aromatic products and significant reductions in production cost when compared to the traditional two (or more) step processes.
