Gasoline producing material studied in detail for 1st time

Fluid Catalytic Cracking (FCC) is a major conversion process in oil refineries that facilitates the conversion of crude oil to gasoline and diesel. The ever increasing demand for transportation fuels drives extensive research aimed at creating more efficient catalytic solids with increased activity. Until now, research was limited to activity measurements, model studies and analyses […] … learn more→
