Product Upgrading

All EFT technology packages incorporate some form of product upgrading. You will find descriptions of the products we can make in the Products section.  EFT hydrocracking technology is based on proprietary, non-sulfided, non-noble metal catalysts that maintain the purity of the sulfur free synthetic feedstock.

EFT has developed several catalytic processes that have proven to be very successful in upgrading raw FT feedstock (synthetic crude oil) into valuable products such as finished on-specification fuel products.  Our expertise has been used for upgrading a number of other feedstocks including bio-oils derived from seed crops and algae.  We have developed similar upgrading technologies for others based on client specified catalyst systems or by screening applicable catalysts available in the market.  Our laboratory has spinning-band vacuum distillation capability that can effectively distill process materials into the appropriate ranges for most fuel product types.  In coordination with the laboratory’s analytical capabilities, raw materials can be processed into upgraded materials, distilled into the appropriate fractions with the fractions blended into on-spec products verified by in-house analytical procedures.  EFT upgrading resources can be used to support GTL or XTL licensees with product samples or provide customized hydroprocessing development for other feedstocks.
