Chinese New Catalyst Development Made A Major Breakthrough
Jan 16, 2018

As of October 13, PetroChina Institute of Petrochemical Research hydrocracking catalyst development and industrial applications ton of industrial scale catalyst long-term test run smoothly 1800 hours, good catalyst activity stability, product distribution and reasonable , To meet production needs. This marks a major scientific and technological project of CNPC refining and oil refining technology has entered a crucial experimental stage.

The core of hydrocracking technology is hydrocracking catalyst, the choice of suitable catalyst is the key to meet the production needs. During the "12th Five-Year Plan", the ethylene capacity of PetroChina Daqing Petrochemical Company will be expanded from 600,000 tons to 1,200,000 tons per year. By then, the annual 1.2 million tons of hydrocracking unit for ethylene cracking unit to provide more than 50% of the raw materials. Therefore, the choice of suitable catalyst to meet the production needs of Daqing Petrochemical key. In response to the actual demand of the next production cycle of Daqing Petrochemical's 1.2 million tons hydrocracking unit in a year, the Petrochemical Institute has targeted to develop a PHC that produces high-quality middle distillate oil while also producing light, heavy naphtha and hydrocracked tail oil -03 hydrocracking catalyst.


The research and development of this catalyst started in 2003. After the active exploration and innovation, the Hydrocracking Project Team of Daqing Chemical Research Center of Petrifaction Academy successfully carried out experiments such as small scale test, pilot scale and large-scale catalyst amplification.


At present, the synthesis of a catalyst material has been completed, another catalyst material is about to begin production, is scheduled to be completed by the end of October, the next step will be carried out technical assessment work, and ultimately form a complete set of independent intellectual property hydrocracking catalyst technology. This project research and development, for the "12th Five-Year" period petrochemical academy to complete the development of a full range of oil refining catalyst to meet China's petroleum hydrocracking unit of middle distillates and bauxite ethylene production, reforming raw materials needs to promote China Petroleum Hydrogenation The process of cracking technology autonomy is of great significance.
