Effects of Multicomponent Fuels, Fuel Additives and Fuel Impurities on Fuel Reforming 2003-01-2254

In order to determine any synergistic effects from reforming multicomponent fuels and to determine the effects of fuel additives and impurities we have investigated the autothermal reforming of fuel blends, including paraffin-aromatic, paraffin-naphthene, paraffin-oxygenate, and paraffin-detergent binary mixtures. The results indicate that aromatic, naphthenic, and detergent components adversely effect the reforming of paraffinic species. The results suggest that competitive adsorption at the catalyst sites decreases conversion rates of the paraffinic species. The paraffinic species are displaced by more strongly adsorbing species, leading to decreased kinetics for paraffin conversion.
