Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) is one of the most important conversion processes used in petroleum refineries and has been in use for more than 75 yr. It is widely used to upgrade heavier cuts like vacuum gas oil and residues to more valuable petroleum products like gasoline and light olefins, and is considered to be the “workhorse” of the refinery. The FCC process can readily adjust to changes in feed quality through modifications of catalysts and operating conditions. FCC can operate in LPG, gasoline and middle distillate mode, depending on seasonal demand. Catalysts and additives play important roles with respect to activity and selectivity for switching between these modes. FCC units ty
