Abstract

The heterogeneous catalytic hydrogenation of rancid lard and its 50% mixtures of gas oil fraction on sulfided CoMo/Al2O3 catalyst to produce diesel fuel was studied. In the course of the heterogeneous catalytic hydrogenation, the deoxygenation of the triglyceride part of the feedstock occurred while the removal of the sulfur and nitrogen content and the saturation of the aromatic content took place with a high degree. Excellent quality products were obtained, i.e., high cetane number, high n-paraffin content, and low sulfur-, nitrogen, and aromatic content, which made them suitable for the use in Diesel-engines. This is an abstract of a paper presented at the CHISA 2012 - 20th International Congress of Chemical and Process Engineering and PRES 2012 - 15th Conference on Process Integration, Modelling and Optimisation for Energy Saving and Pollution Reduction (Prague, Czech Republic 8/25-29/2012).
