Product Upgrading

Although “traditional” refining techniques such as hydrocracking, hydrotreating and isomerization are key tools for product upgrading, the high purity and uniformity of FT synthesized molecules offers some unique advantages that can only be fully realized through the use of non-traditional catalysts and reactor conditions much less severe than “traditional” petroleum-based techniques. All of our upgrading technology packages are based on “private-label” catalysts that have been selected based on rigorous testing in our laboratory, resulting in several reactor simulation models that allow us to accurately predict product characteristics and yields of the various products that we can produce from FT syncrude. See Products for a description of the products EFT has made and can provide upgrading technology packages for.
