Title: ALKYLATION PROCESS WITH IMPROVED OCTANE NUMBER
Abstract:
An improved alkylation process with improved octane number and lower final boiling point. Further, the present disclosure comprises an alkylation system that allows flexibility in the operating parameters without loss of productivity. This enhances the advantage of the solid acid alkylation process of the invention over the liquid acid processes, as the C9+ alkylate will mainly contain the desired highly branched paraffin's in the case of solid acid alkylation. By fractionation of C9+, the RON number of the gasoline alkylate after fractionation remains very high, while the final boiling point of the gasoline fraction will decrease, improving value and blending flexibility.
