  • Publication number: 20140243563
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for the alkylation of residual hydrocarbons obtained from pyrolytic processes, in particular processes for the obtaining of synthesis gas from wet crushed coal, essentially alkene- and alkane-type waste products, in order the exploit the energy thereof in the form of alkenes, alkanes and alcohols having a high energy content. The method is essentially characterised in that the waste products obtained from the synthesis gas formation are subject to a subsequent treatment in order to transform them into other branched alkane-type products and alcoholic compounds, recovering the hydrogen and water produced in said reactions, that remain available for their subsequent use as fuel in other chemical processing plants, or to be fed back to the gasification-pyrolysis process itself, to enrich the synthesis gas obtained.

  • Patent number: 7982084
    Abstract: A new family of crystalline aluminosilicate zeolites has been synthesized. These zeolites are represented by the empirical formula. Mmn+Rr+Al(1-x)ExSiyOz where M represents a combination of potassium and sodium exchangeable cations, R is a singly charged organoammonium cation such as the propyltrimethylammonium cation and E is a framework element such as gallium. These zeolites are similar to MWW but are characterized by unique x-ray diffraction patterns and compositions and have catalytic properties for carrying out various hydrocarbon conversion processes.

  • Publication number: 20110105820
    Abstract: Methods and compositions for stabilizing the activity of catalytic compositions during catalytic processes, such as alkylation. A catalytic composition comprising a partially deactivated ionic liquid catalyst may be regenerated by reaction with a metal to form reactivated catalyst and an inorganic catalyst precursor; and the catalytic composition may be amended in-process by addition of an organic catalyst precursor for reaction with the inorganic catalyst precursor to form fresh ionic liquid catalyst. The organic catalyst precursor may be protected from water, e.g., during handling, by hydrophobic material(s).

  • Patent number: 7875754
    Abstract: A method of operation for producing high yield of alkylate product using catalytic reactors. The catalytic reactors which cycle between reaction mode and catalyst regeneration mode have their contents exchanged with each other at the beginning of each cycle in order to increase the yield of the desired product. This exchange increases the yield by minimizing the contact of reactant in reaction mode with regenerant utilized in regeneration mode. Thus, reducing/preventing the undesirable alternate reaction between the two, which consumes the reactant making it unavailable for the production of the desired product.
