Consider new FCC technologies to produce low-sulfur gasoline

Capital-free techniques such as catalyst and additive programs are viable options when meeting clean fuel specifications

Without doubt, transportation fuels are becoming "cleaner." Globally, governments mandate lower sulfur concentrations for gasoline. Fluid catalytic cracking (FCC) catalysts have demonstrated promising results and have reduced the sulfur content of product streams. However, new less capital-intensive methods such as FCC additives are available and have been successful in adsorbing complex sulfur-containing molecules from product streams. Clean fuels - a global mandate. Worldwide, governments now regulate the composition and quality of transportation fuels, in particular gasoline, to reduce automobile exhaust emissions. As
