How to make anything with a catalytic cracker
Various refined products can be produced via an FCCU only with changes in operating condition, different feedstocks and advanced/specialty catalyst choices.
The first fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) process was introduced almost 72 years ago; yet, this technology remains a principle conversion process in a modern refinery. Much has changed since the original FCC unit (FCCU) became operational. Properly operated, an FCCU can produce a variety of valuable refined products, including olefins and aromatics in addition to high-quality transportation fuel products. Various refined products can be produced via an FCCU only with changes in operating condition, different feedstocks and advanced/specialty catalyst choices.
