  • Publication number: 20220145189
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for processing a bio-derived feedstock in a commercial scale reactor to form renewable distillate boiling range fractions while managing the heat release. The management of the heat release is achieved in part by introducing 1.0 vol % or more of CO into at least a portion of the reaction environment for hydroprocessing of the bio-derived feedstock. The 1.0 vol % or more of CO can selectively reduce the activity of hydrotreating catalyst for olefin saturation.

  • Patent number: 11225611
    Abstract: Disclose is an online analyzer to monitor conversion of a biofeedstock in a first hydrotreating stage to avoid catalyst poisoning in a subsequent stage. An example method of processing a biofeedstock may comprise hydrotreating the biofeedstock by reaction with hydrogen to form a hydrotreated biofeedstock. The method may further comprise monitoring conversion of the biofeedstock in the hydrotreating with an online analyzer.
