Reproduction of oil refining waste catalysts activity under mobile conditions without sending them to specialized enterprises
Nowadays duration of single-pass hydrotreatment catalysts lifespan of ecologically clean motor fuels lasts from six months to one and a half year. Qualified regeneration of these catalysts is possible only ex situ, i.e. with transporting deactivated catalyst from reactor to a special regeneration reactor and then to a special hydrotreating reactor. Qualified regeneration of these catalysts for the purpose of almost complete (up to 95 percent) recovery of their activity solves the problem of resource saving, extending their lifespan by 1.5-2 times. The use of a transportable installation for the regeneration of waste catalysts reduces the financial costs of oil refineries associated which suffer from stations downtime.
