Olefine hydrogenation

A process of hydrogenation of the hydrocarbon fraction arising in polymer waste processing is effected in two steps, in a coupled flow system, using atmospheric pressure in the presence of heterophase catalysts, so that in the first step of the process, methanol is reduced to obtain carbon oxide and hydrogen whereas in the second step, the resulting mixture of carbon oxide and hydrogen is contacted with the hydrocarbon fraction arising in polymer waste processing. The hydrogenation products are useful, for instance, as components of liquid fuels.

The process of technology has been evaluated under the SPIN-TECH project and commercialized (by transfer of rights in the patent). Currently, the technology is being developed by the Transferee with the assistance of the Inventors, using ICRI’s resources.
