Improvement of diesel quality by catalytic procesess

Objective

This project is centred around the synthesis and development of new catalyst materials which will contribute to the improvement of diesel quality and to more efficient use of natural energy resources. These catalyst materials will (a) convert the polyaromatics components of light cycle oil by hydrogenation and ring- opening to hydrocarbons of higher cetane number (b) convert low-value C4 and C5 olefins to synthetic diesel components of high cetane number by oligomerisation.
