Synthesis of High Quality Liquid Fuels by Supercritical Phase Fischer-Tropsch Process 2003-01-1943
High quality liquid fuels for diesel engine are normal paraffins with the carbon number of C10-C20. The most promising method to make them from other carbon resources is the Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (F-T) which gives wide range of product distribution. Higher paraffins can be cracked with a conventional method to diesel fraction while lighter ones cannot. The present authors have developed a new F-T process that makes wax selectively with reduced gaseous products.
