Underperformance of ULSD units may create supply problems in US

Although distillate desulfurization chemistry is fairly well understood, there are still inconsistencies in the operation of small-scale catalyst testing units and in the scale-up and design of large, high-conversion trickle bed reactors that produce ultralow-sulfur diesel (USLD). As a result, some units will perform better than expected, while others will not meet their design requirements, causing a potential shortfall in the production of ULSD.
