Abstract
Ceramatec and the Idaho National Laboratory will develop a hybrid bi-functional catalyst for the selective production of JP5 range diesel fuels. Standard Fischer Tropsch catalysts and reaction conditions result in a broad distribution of products. Catalyst performance is dependent on both composition and microstructure, and microstructure is the result of processing history. Processing variations will address both the catalyst support preparation, and the deposition of the catalytic metal oxides within the support structure. The overall phase I objective is to produce, characterize and operate a catalyst that is more selective, active and stable or enduring. Catalyst physical properties and activity will be characterized, then demonstrated in a modular reactor design.
