Many oil refineries employ hydroprocessing for removing sulfur and
other impurities from petroleum feedstocks. Capable of handling
heavier feedstocks than other refining techniques, hydroprocessing
enables refineries to produce higher quality products from
unconventional - and formerly wasted - sources. Hydroprocessing of
Heavy Oils and Residua illustrates how to obtain maximum yields of
high-value products from heavy oils and residue using
While most resources on hydroprocessing concentrate ongas oil
and lower boiling products, this book details the chemistry
involved and the process modifications required for the
hydroprocessing of heavy crude oils and residua. Emphasizing the
use of effective catalysts to ensure cleaner and more efficient
industrial fuel processes, the book presents key principles of
heterogeneous catalyst preparation, catalyst loading, and reactor
systems. It explains how to evaluate and account for catalysts,
reactor type, process variables, feedstock type, and feedstock
composition in the design of hydroprocessing operations. The text
concludes with examples of commercial processes and discusses
methods of hydrogen production.
To meet the growing demand for transportation fuels and fuel
oil, modern oil refineries must find ways to produce high quality
fuel products from increasingly heavy feedstocks. Hydroprocessing
of Heavy Oils and Residua contains the fundamental concepts,
technologies, and process modifications refineries need to adapt
current hydroprocessing technologies for processing heavier
