    Can FCC be used to crack animal fats into diesel or gasoline like fuels 

  • #7570


    Animal fats are extremely excellent cracking feedstocks with no aromatics, no metals, extremely low sulfur and nitrogen.  We expect the conversion would be 95+% with very low delta coke.  The gasoline octane will be low.

    Is anyone in the world feeding this stuff to a FCC?
    I’m working in a European refinery, and we think this could be a good way to comply with the future specs on biofuels…
