Abstract

The applicability of a modified NiMoW/Al 2O 3 catalyst was studied for the conversion of specially pretreated Hungarian sunflower oil with high oleic acid content, which was ennobled produce motor fuels . The changes of the specific hydrocracking activity of the applied catalyst, the pathways of hydrodeoxygenation reactions, and the effect of the process parameters on the yield and on the quality of the products were investigated. The catalyst had a significant isomerization activity thus, products with higher isoparaffin content, advantageous cold flow properties, and high cetane number, could be produced than on the commonly used hydrotreating catalyst derived paraffin mixture. In case of the special hydrocracking of the ennobled sunflower oil, the hydrogen consumption was definitely smaller, than in case of conventional sunflower oil, because of the lower average number of the olefinic double bonds. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the 19th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering and 7th European Congress of Chemical Engineering (Prague, Czech Republic 8/28/2010-9/1/2010).
