Title: PROCESSES FOR THE PRODUCTION OF LIQUID FUELS FROM CARBON CONTAINING FEEDSTOCKS, RELATED SYSTEMS AND CATALYSTS
Abstract:
The present invention is directed to unique processes, catalysts and systems for the direct production of liquid fuels from synthesis gas produced from natural feedstocks. In one aspect, the present invention provides a process for the production of a hydrocarbon mixture comprising the steps of: a) reducing a catalyst in-situ in a fixed bed reactor; b) reacting a feed gas that contains hydrogen and carbon monoxide with the catalyst to produce a hydrocarbon product stream comprising light gases, a diesel fuel and a wax, and wherein the diesel fuel fraction is produced without requiring the hydroprocessing of wax, and wherein the catalyst comprises one or more metals deposited on a gamma alumina support at, and wherein platinum or rhenium is included on the support as a promoter, wherein the catalyst has surface pore diameters, and wherein the diesel fuel comprises more than about 70 percent C8-C24 hydrocarbons.
