Consider new processes for clean gasoline and olefins production
Advanced technologies promote propylene yield while reducing olefins in gasoline
Refiners must meet increasingly stringent specifications for cleaner gasoline, as shown in the gasoline standards defined by the Worldwide Fuel Charter (WWFC), a global agreement between the major motor manufacturers in the US, Europe and Japan.1 Fig. 1 shows the trend of WWFC standards toward progressive reductions of sulfur, olefins, benzene and aromatics. The high level WWFC categories of gasoline have been or soon will be, adopted by the gasoline standards of the US, Europe and many other countries.
