An underwater pelletizing method for pelletizing brittle hydrocarbon resins with low melt viscosity. A feed material comprising the hydrocarbon resin is formed into a melt, extruded through a die into a water bath below the tg of the hydrocarbon resin to form a plurality of extrudates and cut adjacent the die surface to form a slurry of resin pellets.

High performance ziegler-natta catalyst systems, process for producing such supported catalysts and use thereof

A method for making a solid catalyst component for use in a ziegler-natta catalyst includes combining in a hydrocarbon solvent a porous particulate support with a hydrocarbon soluble organomagnesium compound to form a suspension. The organomagnesium compound is halogenated followed by addition of an alcohol and the mixture is then reacted with a titanium compound followed by a reaction with at least one diether compound to form the solid catalyst component.

High performance ziegler-natta catalyst systems, process for producing such mgcl2 based catalysts and use thereof

Improved ziegler-natta catalysts and methods of making the improved catalyst are described. The ziegler-natta catalyst is formed using a spherical mgcl2-xroh support, where r is a linear, cyclic or branched hydrocarbon unit with 1-10 carbon atoms and where roh is an alcohol or a mixture of at least two different alcohols and where x has a range of about 1.5 to 6.0, preferably about 2.5 to 4, more preferably about 2.9 to 3.4, and even more preferably 2.95 to 3.35.

Ionic liquid reactor with hydrocyclones

A method of alkylating a hydrocarbon stream including: providing a feed stream that includes hydrocarbons and ionic liquid catalyst; passing the feed stream through a low efficiency mixer to create a mixed stream, whereby the low efficiency mixer creates droplets within the feed stream that are primarily within a predetermined size range; passing the mixed stream and an olefin stream into a reactor; performing an alkylation reaction within the reactor, thereby forming a reacted stream; and separating the reacted stream into a settled ionic liquid catalyst stream and a hydrocarbon stream through the use of at least one hydrocyclone.. .

Conversion of oligomeric starch, cellulose, hydrolysates or sugars to hydrocarbons

Embodiments of the present invention are directed to the conversion of a source material (e.g., a depolymerized oligosaccharide mixture, a monomeric sugar, a hydrolysate, or a mixture of monomeric sugars) to intermediate molecules containing 7 to 26 contiguous carbon atoms. These intermediates may also be converted to saturated hydrocarbons.

Process and system for the generation of synthesis gas

A process and system for the generation of synthesis gas that is provided, in particular, for preparing hydrocarbon-containing fuel, ammonia or urea. The process follows the steps of providing a first feed gas stream of methane and reacting the first feed gas stream with steam in a reforming step, obtaining a synthesis gas stream of co and h2.

Process for generating syngas from a co2-rich hydrocarbon-containing feed gas

A process for generating a syngas from a co2-rich and hydrocarbon-containing feed gas, wherein a co2-rich and hydrocarbon-containing feed gas is provided and is reacted in a syngas generation step by means of partial oxidation or steam reforming to give an h2- and co-comprising syngas. At least co2 is removed from the feed gas in a scrubbing of the feed gas by means of a scrubbing medium, before the feed gas is fed to the syngas generation step..

Process for the production of synthesis gas

Process for the production of synthesis gas from hydrocarbon feed containing higher hydrocarbons comprising by-passing a portion of the hydrocarbon feed around a first pre-reforming stage and passing the pre-reformed and bypassed portions through at least a second pre-reforming stage.. .
