Naphtha Reforming Nanocatalyst for CCR unit


Catalytic reforming is a major conversion process in petroleum refinery which converts low octane naphthas into higher octane reformate products for gasoline blending and aromatic rich reformate for aromatic production. To perform the process correctly and efficiently, as well as to prevent coke making, the process structure and catalyst must be selected optimally. The efficient structure of the reforming reactors is continues catalytic reforming (CCR). In this process the catalyst is key component. The γ–alumina based catalyst is amongst the catalysts that has a long history in catalytic reforming. In naphtha reforming, γ–alumina is responsible for acidic interactions; moreover, the dehydrogenation reactions are performed by some metals which are impregnated to the catalyst. Therefore, alumina-based catalyst is a very suitable candidate for catalytic reforming. 


  • Production of high-octane components which are premium blending stocks for high-octane gasoline, and the main source of aromatic bulk chemicals such as benzene, toluene

Advantage of Using Nanotechnology

Nanoporous alumina has a large specific surface area which facilitates reactions. Furthermore, the catalyst is impregnated with nanoparticles which create more available surface for reforming reactions.
