Title: Production of aromatics from di- and polyoxygenates

Abstract

Methods, catalysts, and reactor systems for producing in high yield aromatic chemicals and liquid fuels from a mixture of oxygenates comprising di- and polyoxygenates are disclosed. Also disclosed are methods, catalysts, and reactor systems for producing aromatic chemicals and liquid fuels from oxygenated hydrocarbons such as carbohydrates, sugars, sugar alcohols, sugar degradation products, and the like; and methods, catalysts, and reactor systems for producing the mixture of oxygenates from oxygenated hydrocarbons such as carbohydrates, sugars, sugar alcohols, sugar degradation products, and the like. The disclosed catalysts for preparing the mixture of oxygenates comprise a Ni.sub.nSn.sub.m alloy and a crystalline alumina support.

  • The present invention provides methods, reactor systems and catalysts for converting biomass and biomass-derived feedstocks to C.sub.8+ hydrocarbons using heterogenous catalysts. The product stream may be separated and further processed for use in chemical applications, or as a neat fuel or a blending component in jet fuel and diesel fuel, or as heavy oils for lubricant and/or fuel oil applications.
  • This patent describes a thermal cracking process for producing enhanced benzene, toluene and xylene field from heavy hydrocarbon comprising the steps of: (a) diluting the heavy hydrocarbon with about 02. pound of steam per pound of heavy hydrocarbon; (b) partially thermally cracking the heavy hydrocarbon under medium severity conditions to temperatures of about 1200/sup 0/F to 1450/sup 0/F at a residence time of about 0.05 seconds; (c) thermally cracking a stream of ethane to high conversion; and (d) mixing the partially thermally cracked hydrocarbon stream with the high temperature ethane stream that has been thermally cracked to high conversion tomore » complete thermal cracking of the composite stream.« less
