Summary "Modern spectroscopic techniques are essential to the understanding of catalyst performance and feedstock properties. This volume examines the use of adsorption microcalorimetry to measure acidity, acid site density, and strength of the strongest acid sites in heterogenous catalysts. The book discusses the use of H-NMR to characterize the properties of an FCCU feedstock, pilot plant testing of catalysts and non traditional feedstocks, maximizing and improving LCO (heating oil) production and quality, and the improvement of FCCU operations. The final chapters review consent decree negotiation as well as FCC emissions (SOx, NOx, CO, PM) reduction technologies."-- Provided by publisher
"Since 1987, the Petroleum Division of the American Chemical Society (ACS) has sponsored at three years intervals an international symposium on fluid cracking catalysts technology. Papers presented at these symposia have been published in book form in seven separate volumes. The recent global economic downturn together with the H1N1 flu scare, have limited participation and contributions to the recent 238th ACS meeting in Washington DC, August 2009. As a result the present volume contains, in addition to research presented at the symposium, several invited papers"-- Provided by publisher
