THE AVN BLOG: Hydrotreating


A need was brought to AVN to carry out a hydrotreating process on a specific feed material using a sulfided catalyst. AVN designed and constructed a reaction system that allowed continuous operation with appropriate feeds, including hydrogen, liquid feeds, other gases, and sulfiding agent. The unit was designed for safe unattended operation. After activating the catalyst with the prescribed procedures, the unit was operated continuously over several months to generate product and data important for further development.
