HDS screening capabilities using Avantium’s parallel fixed bed technology Peter Mangnus , Pieter Imhof, Guido Claus Avantium Technologies, Amsterdam, 1014BV, Netherlands Corresponding author: +31(20)5868080, peter.mangnus@avantium.com Abstract: World wide specifications for transportation fuels have become more stringent over the years. This has fueled catalyst development in the field of hydroprocessing and related refining areas. Avantium’s parallel fixed bed technology, which is used in Avantium’s catalyst research services and in the Flowrence TM , allows our customers to increase catalysts screening capabilities and accelerate catalysts development. This technology is successfully applied in the field of hydroprocessing like hydrodesulphurization and hydrocracking. . Strict control of liquid and gas flows, as well as pressure, temperature and gas-liquid separation, enables highly accurate screening and development of HDS catalysts. The testing accuracy using Avantium’s parallel fixed bed systems is similar to those observed using state of the art large(r) single reactor systems. In the case of ULSD applications, desulfurization from high sulfur feeds until sulfur levels below 10ppm can be achieved very accurately. At levels of 10 ppm sulfur the standard deviation between individual reactors is close to 1 ppm. Introduction Avantium is a leader in the area of advanced high-throughput research and development services and tools, focusing on the energy, chemicals and pharmaceutical industries worldwide. The benefits of this high-throughput approach are greater speed but also the possibility
