  • 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.
    Type: Grant

  • Publication number: 20090149565
    Abstract: The present invention discloses method for making defect-free high performance mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) containing a continuous polymer matrix and dispersed molecular sieves such as AlPO-14 or UZM-5. These MMMs can be used for separations. The novel method for making defect-free high performance MMMs comprises: post treating the MMM at a temperature ?150° C. This new method results in a MMM with either no macrovoids or voids of less than 5 angstroms at the interface of the continuous polymer matrix and the molecular sieves. The MMMs are in the form of symmetric dense film, thin-film composite (TFC), asymmetric flat sheet or asymmetric hollow fiber. These MMMs have good flexibility and high mechanical strength, and exhibit high carbon dioxide/methane (CO2/CH4) selectivity and high CO2 permeance for CO2/CH4 separation. The MMMs are suitable for a variety of liquid, gas, and vapor separations.
