Process, catalyst choices key to producing 30-ppm sulfur fuels

Refiners will find that their choices of process technologies and catalysts will determine their ability to produce ultra-low sulfur (30 ppm) gasoline and diesel.In particular, producing ultra-low sulfur diesel will be more of a challenge than producing 30-ppm-sulfur gasoline.Ultra-low sulfur diesel production will require larger investments in high-pressure hydrotreating than will gasoline. Although it will not solve all diesel quality and demand problems, retrofiting existing reactors and choosing the better catalysts will help ease the need for additional diesel hydrotreating capacity.The prospect of making less-than-30-ppm sulfur streams poses other challenges:The possibility of conta...
