Catalysis plays a major role in petroleum refining and most of the processes are catalytic. Petroleum fractions produces via fractional distillations of crude oil do not fulfil the quality standards to be used as fuels and the increasing refinery catalyst market demands.
Refinery catalyst market, at present describes the key conversion processes, which functions in modern refineries generating high quality fuels, mostly diesel and gasoline refinery. The high demand in gasoline with anti-knocking characteristics is fulfilled with catalytic cracking of heavy petroleum fractions at high temperature in the presence of highly active and selective catalyst oil.
Improvement in oil refinery catalyst market for octane number of light and heavy naphtha is accomplished in isomerization and reforming processes respectively in the presence of hydrogen and metallic noble refinery catalysts. High quality gasoline without aromatics is also formed via alkylation reactions of light olefins with isobutene in the presence of strong acid catalysts. Hydro-processing of final product and intermediate hydrocarbon streams and hydrocracking units for upgrading heavy intermediate products operating under various conditions consisting an important part of a modern refinery operator.
The first generation of biofuels is already in the fuel market. However, their major drawback is the high production cost compared with conventional fuels and the concern about use of edible feedstock. For this reason second generation biofuels are now under development. It is important to mention the technologies almost ready for commercialization for diesel production. There will be opportunities for new catalyst handling formulations help to control the composition of these products at a molecular level. The refinery catalyst market products reports are formed and the operating variables, the refinery process schemes are applied and the future trends are discussed. There is no such specific region leading in the market as it is industrial chemical every region needs it and ruling accordingly in the marketplace.
