  • Patent number: 8043600
    Abstract: A process for the hydrotreating of fuels with co-production of hydrogen during operation of the process, which enables i.e. reduced need of make-up hydrogen in the hydrotreating stage. The hydrocarbon fuel introduced to the hydrotreatment stage is a fuel containing renewable organic material which generates carbon monoxide during operation of the process. The carbon monoxide is then converted to hydrogen in the recycle loop by a water gas shift stage.

    Date of Patent: October 25, 2011
    Assignee: Haldor Topsøe A/S

  • Patent number: 7713408
    Abstract: Process for the catalytic hydrotreating of a hydrocarbon feed stock containing silicon compounds comprising the steps of contacting the feed stock in presence of hydrogen with a first hydrotreating catalyst being arranged in at least two reactors being connected in series at an outlet temperature of up to 410° C. to reduce content of the silicon compounds in the feed stock; cooling of the feed stock such treated to a temperature of between 280° and 350° C.; and contacting the cooled feed stock with a second hydrotreating catalyst at conditions being effective in reduction of sulphur compound and nitrogen compound concentration.

  • Patent number: 7601310
    Abstract: Downflow catalytic reactor having a plurality of catalyst beds in which a mixture of gas and liquid are passed, the region in between subsequent catalyst beds being provided with a distributor system for the distribution and mixing of gas and liquid prior to contact with a subsequent catalyst bed, said region comprising: (a) gas injection line arranged below a catalyst support tray, (b) collector tray adapted to receive gas and liquid, (c) spillway collectors extending above the level of said collecting tray, (d) mixing chamber adapted to receive the gas and liquid descending from said spillway collectors, (e) impingement plate below said mixing chamber, (f) first distributor tray arranged below said impingement plate having a number of apertures throughout and a number chimneys, and (g) second distributor tray arranged below said first distributor tray for the redistribution of gas and liquid prior to contact with the subsequent catalyst bed, wherein the at least one chimney is provided with a distributor d

  • Patent number: 7600742
    Abstract: Liquid-vapour distribution device for use in two-phase concurrent down-flow vessels, having a level, horizontal tray being perforated with holes, each perforation through the horizontal tray being fitted with a vapour lift tube, the vapour lift tube including at least one elongated up-flow leg and one down-flow leg creating at least one up-flow zone and a down-flow zone between the up-flow zone and down-flow zone, and a bluff body being arranged within the transition zone and/or in a region of the upflow or down-flow zone adjacent to the transition zone of the vapour lift tube.

  • Patent number: 7300567
    Abstract: Process for the removal of coloured compounds in a hydrocarbon feedstock comprising the steps of hydrotreating the feedstock in presence of a first hydrotreating catalyst under conditions being effective in hydrogenation of hydrogenable compounds being present in the feedstock and hydrotreating an effluent from the first hydrotreating step in a second catalytic hydrotreating step being carried out in a second hydrotreating reactor at hydrotreating conditions, wherein the effluent from the first hydrotreating step is separated into a gas phase and a mixed gas and liquid phase prior to the second hydrotreating step, and the mixed phase is hydrotreated in the second hydrotreating step without further addition of hydrogen.
