  • Publication number: 20160251280
    Abstract: A process for the aromatization of alkanes in an alkane-containing gas stream, which alkane-containing gas stream contains at least one alkane selected from the group consisting of ethane, propane or butane and contains essentially no methane, comprising contacting the alkane-containing gas stream in a reaction zone with a moving bed comprising an aromatization catalyst and a hydrogen acceptor under alkane aromatization conditions to produce a product stream comprising aromatics and hydrogen wherein at least a portion of the hydrogen is bound by the hydrogen acceptor in the reaction zone and removed from the product and the reaction zone.
    Type: Application

  • Publication number: 20160251279
    Abstract: A process for the aromatization of alkanes in an alkane-containing gas stream comprising: contacting the alkane-containing gas stream in a reactor with a fluidized bed comprising an aromatization catalyst and a hydrogen acceptor under alkane aromatization conditions to produce a product stream comprising aromatics and hydrogen wherein the hydrogen is, at least in part, bound by the hydrogen acceptor in the reaction zone and removed from the product and the reaction zone.
