NEW AND MODIFIED PROCESSES AND CATALYSTS NEEDED FOR NEW FUELS

Reformulated gasoline and diesel fuel will stretch existing refining processing configurations to the limit, and they will likely require some new processes. As a result, refineries could look substantially different by the end of the 1990s. Reduced gasoline aromatics, olefins, and benzene contents and lower gasoline vapor pressure will mean that major gasoline producing processes, such as fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) and catalytic reforming, will have to change. Other processes, such as
