  • Patent number: 10799857
    Abstract: A process using a dealkylated aromatic liquid improves a heavy hydrocarbon liquid used for supporting molybdenum carbonized catalyst. Dealkylated aromatic liquid can be derived from heavy hydrocarbon materials that have been subjected to cracking, such as fluid catalytic cracking or slurry hydrocracking. The heavy hydrocarbon liquid can comprise a portion of resid SHC feed and a portion of a gas oil stream from SHC effluent.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10703990
    Abstract: A process is disclosed for using an iron oxide and alumina catalyst with no more than more than about 55 wt % of the alumina in the diaspore phase or in the alpha phase in SHC. Alpha alumina is less effective catalyst component for slurry hydrocracking in terms of TIOR conversion. Drying procedures should avoid more than about 51 wt % of the alumina change to the alpha phase. The SHC catalyst is for converting heavy hydrocarbon feed into lighter hydrocarbon products.

  • Patent number: 10633604
    Abstract: A process and catalyst is disclosed for converting heavy hydrocarbon feed into lighter hydrocarbon products using multifunctional catalysts. Multifunctional catalysts enable use of less expensive metal by substituting expensive metals for less expensive metals with no loss or superior performance in slurry hydrocracking. Less available and expensive ISM can be replaced effectively.

  • Patent number: 10195588
    Abstract: A process and catalyst is disclosed for converting a heavy hydrocarbon feed stream into lighter hydrocarbon products using a two component catalyst. The catalyst comprises iron and molybdenum containing catalyst. Alumina may be a third catalyst component. The molybdenum is present in the heavy hydrocarbon feed stream at about 500 wppm or less and the weight ratio of iron to the molybdenum is less than 5. Much lower concentrations of expensive molybdenum can be used due to the addition of iron in the catalyst.
